About Matteo Campioli

My research is focused on plant growth and production, their environmental drivers, and their relationship with plant phenology. I investigate all major terrestrial ecosystems, in particularly temperate forests and arctic tundra. I work at individual-, ecosystem- and global scale, at seasonal and annual level, adopting field-work, data-analysis and modeling. My research deals with both fundamental questions as well as applications within the global carbon cycle and the anthropogenic impact on ecosystem biomass production.
