About this book

Focuses on the interactive effects of environmental stresses with plant and ecosystem functions, especially with respect to changes in the abundance of carbon dioxide.

Media reviews
The book's objectives are to summarize our current understanding of how CO2 interacts with the individual environmental stressors listed above, and to stimulate future research, particularly at the ecosystem level. As with other books in the series, this volume will be an important primter and point of departure for many investigators, particularly students and those relatively new to global change biology. Those more familiar with the primary literature will still find this collection of papers useful, not only for review and reference but also, I expect, for teaching purposes. Most chapters in the book are well-organized and well-written, and a few chapters are written with a refreshing clarity and directness of purpose. ...the most important message from this book, that we need to think of in terms of atmospheric CO2 and other environmental changes as interdependent, formative aspects of and responses to the larger phenomenon of global change, and work toward integrating our CO2 research accordingly. --ECOLOGY
