About this book

The authors demonstrate that the role of vegetation in the terrestrial carbon cycle during this time can be analysed by considering the key elements of present day vegetation processes linked to models of the global climate during different geological eras.

'The book is pioneering, thought provoking and scholarly ! if you are interested in plant-atmosphere interactions, then the book is worth reading.' Dennis Baldocchi, TRENDS in Ecology & Evolution '! pioneering, thought provoking and scholarly ! The bottom line is that, if you are interested in plant-atmosphere interactions, then this book is worth reading.' Dennis Baldocchi, TRENDS in Ecology and Evolution '! an excellent reference to a new approach using data on vegetation and the carbon cycle.' Philip E. LaMoreaux, Environmental Geology
