INRA UMR SAS link will be the project leader of IMTA-EFFECT project. Moreover, the team will be in charge of the environmental assessment of the different studied system using Life Cycle Assessment and Emergy accounting (Joël Aubin and Aurélie Wilfart). The perception of ecosystem services provided by the IMTA will be conducted by Helene Rey-Valette (LAMETA- Université de Montpellier) Link under the umbrella of UMR SAS. Analysis of C and N natural stables isotopes and fatty acids for the different partners will be performed by Sarah Nahon (INRA UR NuMéA) Link who is experienced in these analytical fields and will participate in the project under the umbrella of UMR SAS. Moreover the team will conduct an experiment on combined cyprinids pond systems in INRA U3E experimental unit at Rennes (France) Link . UMR SAs will be in charge of the creation of a website for group management and dissemination.

UMR SAS is involved in the study of cultivated areas as well semi-natural areas such as bocage, riparian wetlands, rivers banks…, to determine the N and C cycling on fields, farms, small and large catchments. The unit considers agricultural systems, their sustainability, their possible complementarities on large areas (exchange of matter or energy…). This research program is applied on livestock and aquaculture systems. Teams (or Theme) The structure of UMR SAS is organised through 3 research teams:

  •  MoSol: This research team associates agronomists and soil scientists. Research addresses analytical approaches related to soil functioning and organic matter dynamics, but also systemic approaches at landscape level.
  • Agrohydrology: The researches team aims to understand processes that affect groundwater and stream water quality at the catchment scale. Climatic, morphological, pedological and geological properties of the catchment, and cultivated landscapes structures (hedgerow, riparian zone) control flowpaths, transit times, storage and biogeochemical transformations from groundwater to the stream. Models are built in order to get a better understanding in hydrologic and biogeochemical processes as well as to predict evolution of water quality.
  • ASAE: This research team is dedicated to environmental assessment in order to conceive farming systems more autonomous, more efficient and less polluting. The research topics are oriented on: the conception, methodology and application of environmental assessment methods, especially based on Life Cycle Assessment, the inclusion of the variability and sensitivity of biophysical contexts in the assessment and conception of sustainable farming systems, the proposal of ecological intensification pathways for evolution of farming systems (especially livestock and aquaculture).
