Media reviews
'As a whole the book is recommended reading for all researchers in regional or global environmental science. The various chapters present an excellent overview with detailed references to many important aspects of global environmental issues and the reports of the working groups have already provided guidlines for ongoing research. As such, it has amply achieved the organizers' goal.' Earth Science Reviews ' ! a timely and valuable contribution to the field.' Giles Foody, Applied Geography
