Agropolis International :
The Dossiers d’Agropolis International series is a deliverable of Agropolis International that is produced within the scope of its mission to promote expertise of the scientific community.
Each Dossier is devoted to a broad scientific theme, and includes a clear overview that is a ready reference for all laboratories and teams associated with Agropolis International that are conducting research on the target theme.

This Dossier showcases research structures based in
Languedoc-Roussillon Region whose activities are
focused on addressing challenges encountered in
studies on climate change impacts and adaptations :
46 research units (UR, depending on a single supervisory authority), or joint research units (UMR, depending on several supervisory bodies), members of the Agropolis International research community
- 2 ‘laboratories of excellence’ (LabEx Agro -
Agronomy and Sustainable Development p.70, and LabEx CeMEB - Centre Méditerranéen de l’Environnement et de la Biodiversité p. 29) and a federative structure (IM2E:
Montpellier Institute for Water and Environment p.10)
that manage the scientific activities of some research
units on these topics
- 5 research infrastructures of national or European scope that are devoted to observations in the
natural environment or in controlled experiments: the Observatoire de Recherche Méditerranéen de
l’Environnement (OSU OREME p.36), the Oceanic
Observatory of Banyuls-sur-Mer (OOB p.41), one of the
three national branches of the European Marine
Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC-France p.50), the
Mediterranean Platform for Marine Ecosystem
Experimental Research (MEDIMEER p. 49) and the European Ecotron of Montpellier
5 foreign or international partners set up in the region that conduct scientific activities in collaboration with Agropolis members: the CGIAR Consortium (international organization) (p.83), ‘external laboratories without walls’ of EMBRAPA (Brazil) (p. 84) and INTA (Argentina) (p.85), and subsidiary laboratories of CSIRO (Australia) (p.61) and USDA/ARS (USA) (p. 62)
Scientific research carried out by the regional
research stakeholders on climate change impacts and
adaptations is very broad in scope. This Dossier,
which is far from being comprehensive- aims to give readers an overview of this research by highlighting the stakeholders involved and giving a few practical examples of their research activities. These are presented under four major themes:
Climate change & biodiversity and ecosystems (Biodiversity and continental ecosystems, Biodiversity and marine ecosystems)
Agropolis International members also offer a broad
range of diploma training-education courses (2-8 years
of higher education) in which the climate change issue
is taken into account in the light of the most recent
advanced research on the topic.
The list of training and education courses is available online (www.agropolis.org/training/).

These thematic directories provide a global and easy to consult presentation of the laboratories, teams and research units of all the Agropolis intitutes involved in the given issue. They also provide information on the wide range of training sessions available.
One of the objectives of the series is to facilitate contacts for the development of exchanges and technical and scientific cooperations by a wider promotion of the community skills.
