Research Expertise

Description

Mike Jones is a plant ecophysiologist and is Emeritus Fellow in Trinity College Dublin and a Member of the Royal Irish Academy. His main research interest is in the study of climate-plant interactions and since the 1980's he has been studying the effects of changing climate, and the direct effects of rising CO2 on a range of ecosystems including agricultural and natural grasslands and tropical wetlands. He has coordinated several EU Framework Programme Projects as well as EPA and DAFM projects. He is currently subject editor of Global Change Biology (IF 6.9) and GCB-Bioenergy (IF 4.7).
