ANR SecPriMe2 : Trade-off between SECondary and PRImary MEtabolism in MEditerranean forest under climate change

SecPriMe² is a research Program funded by ANR (Prg Blanc SVSE7) since septembre 2012. SecPriMe² aims to use a combined experimental and modelling strategy to investigate drought impacts on the functioning of a Mediterranean forest ecosystem. Its originality is to focus on plant responses to rainfall restriction through the estimation of both plant primary metabolism (PPM, e.g. plant productivity) and plant secondary metabolite (PSMs, e.g. plant defense) as well as the trade-offs between them.
