Alessandro Craparo

My research is focussed on climate change, plant physiology, complexity analysis and global environmental change. I am currently involved in several projects throughout the Tropics focussed on how climate change and variability has, and will, influence plant and crop production (coffee, cocoa and several annual crops). I am increasingly interested in how biospheres in the higher latitudes and the Arctic (boreal forests, tundra, high alpine vegetation) respond to changes in climate and what this means for interlinked systems (permafrost, cryosphere).
