Systems and Flows axis

The Systems and Flows axis

The scientific axis Systems and flows investigates elemental fluxes in agroecological crop- and animal-production systems. The objectives are to:

  • Quantify fluxes of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus (CNP) in all compartments of the agroecosystem, as well as the related environmental risks
  • Understand the effects of interactions among soils, plants, animals, farm waste and the environment, as well as the influence of biodiversity, on soil processes and CNP cycles.

The axis (20 people) brings together skills in agronomy, soil sciences, biogeochemistry.

Leaders: Chris Fléchard et Aurélia Michaud
