The site has a flow tower in a clonal Eucalyptus plantation, where nutrient cycles are also measured (lysimetric devices; JP Laclau), but also clonal tests (study of the variability of water use efficiencies and carbon allocations), experimental plots to study the effects of partial rain exclusion and potassium fertilization on mineral element cycles, carbon and water, and finally experimental plots comparing the ecophysiological/biogeochemical functioning of monospecific and multi-species plantations of Eucalyptus grandis and Acacia mangium (Intensifix Project, JP Bouillet).
The site provides the following services to scientists:
- An in situ ecosystem experimentation service;
- Instrumentation for the long-term monitoring of these ecosystems and the in situ measurement of environmental parameters;
- Devices and tools for collecting samples and data on the ecosystems studied.
