    Ehrhardt F; Soussana J-F; Bellocchi G; Grace P; McAullife R; Recous S; Sandor R; Smith P; Snow V; Migliorati MDA; Basso B; Bhatia A; Brilli L; Doltra J; Dorich CD; Doro L; Fitton N; Giacomini SJ; Grant B; Harrison MT; Jones SK; Kirschbaum MUF; Klumpp K; Laville P; Leonard J; Liebig M; Lieffering M; Martin R; Massad RS; Meier E; Merbold L; Moore AD; Myrgiotis V; Newton P; Pattey E; Rolinski S; Sharp J; Smith WN; Wu L; Zhang Q (2017)
    Simulation models are extensively used to predict agricultural productivity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. However, the uncertainties of (reduced) model ensemble simulations have not been assessed systematically for ...
  • Key challenges and priorities for modelling European grasslands under climate change 

    Kipling RP; Virkajarvi P; Breitsameter L; Curnel Y; De Swaef T; Gustavsson A-M; Hennart S; Hoglind M; Jarvenranta K; Minet J; Nendel C; Persson T; Picon-Cochard C; Rolinski S; Sandars DL; Scollan ND; Sebek L; Seddaiu G; Topp CFE; Twardy S; Van Middelkoop J; Wu L; Bellocchi G (2016)
    Grassland-based ruminant production systems are integral to sustainable food production in Europe, converting plant materials indigestible to humans into nutritious food, while providing a range of environmental and cultural ...
  • Modeling European ruminant production systems: facing the challenges of climate change 

    Kipling RP; Bannick A; Bellocchi G; Dalgaard T; Fox NJ; Hutchings NJ; Kjeldsen C; Lacetera N; Sinabell F; Topp CFE; van Oijen M; Scollan ND (2016)
    Ruminant production systems are important producers of food, support rural communities and culture, and help to maintain a range of ecosystem services including the sequestering of carbon in grassland soils. However, ...
  • The use of biogeochemical models to evaluate mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from managed grasslands 

    Sandor R; Ehrhardt F; Brilli L; Carozzi M; Recous S; Smith P; Snow V; Soussana J-F; Dorich CD; Fuchs K; Fitton N; Gongadze K; Klumpp K; Liebig M; Martin R; Merbold L; Newton PCD; Rees RM; Rolinski S; Bellocchi G (2018)
    Simulation models quantify the impacts on carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycling in grassland systems caused by changes in management practices. To support agricultural policies, it is however important to contrast the responses ...
