Over recent years several steps have been made to reduce uncertainties in the quantification of biogenic VOC emissions in Europe. However ecosystems in southern Europe are still poorly characterised in relation to their VOC emissions. Recent studies have shown that Mediterranean vegetation species have VOC emission patterns completely different from northern European vegetation. Conifer species are usually asso
