About this book

Examines climate dominance on the distribution of the major vegetation types of the world.

F.I. Woodward has written a useful short book...Its strengths derive from Woodward's understanding of scale, his focus on key physical and physiological relationships and mechanisms, and his willingness to simplify and to test models that link plant physiological responses to global vegetable patterns...Woodward's ideas should be key to research in the emerging International Geosphere Biosphere Program. The potential application of Woodward's ideas is therefore high, and this potential makes his book a timely publication. Ecology
