The objectives of TARANTELLA are :
o To compare the effects of experimentally induced climate change and enhanced UV-B radiation
o To study and analyse effects of temperature (including moisture and nutrient availability) and UV-B radiation manipulations deployed over different periods of time and in different localities
o To compare the patterns and processes of manipulated with non-manipulated natural controls.
o To study these changes along latitudinal and altitudinal gradients.
o To study plant morphological and chemical effects in response to UV-B radiation
o To test how the balance between facilitation versus competition among autotrophic species varies with temperature and UV-B radiation and other climatic variables
o To investigate the effects of environmental perturbation on carbon- and nutrient dynamics within and between the different compartments of the ecosystem
