MOTTLES proposes new critical levels for forest protection against Ozone. This issue arises because European standards to protect vegetation from this air pollutant are currently based on O3 concentration in the atmosphere, not on the stomatal ozone fluxes, e.g. how much ozone is effectively taken by plants. The long-term monitoring network established by Mottles will...

Plant growth and productivity are affected by multiple abiotic stresses. Abiotic stresses such as drought and extreme temperatures are serious threats to agriculture and result in deterioration of the environment. Understanding how plant adapt to freezing temperatures and survive the formation of ice within their tissues has received a wide attention. However, several critical questions...
