Associated to the scholarship:16/12853-6 - Impact of increased temperature and water deficit in future climate simulation on the physiological and productive performance of two tropical forage species, BP.IC


This study proposes to evaluate the effects of the water soil shortage and increased air temperature on carbon dynamic and water use efficiency of a forage species, Panicum maximum, given that in Brazil it is one of the most important forage species used as livestock fodder. These parameters are very important on the understanding of the climate change effects on this species productivity. (AU)
