About this book

Ecosystem Dynamics focuses on long-term terrestrial ecosystems and their changing relationships with human societies. The unique aspect of this text is the long-time scale under consideration as data and insights from the last 10 000 years are used to place present-day ecosystem status into a temporal perspective and to test models that generate forecasts of future conditions. Descriptions and assessments of some of the current modelling tools that are used, along with their uncertainties and assumptions, are an important feature of Ecosystem Dynamics. An overarching theme explores the dynamic interactions between human societies and ecosystem functioning and services. Ecosystem Dynamics is authoritative but accessible and provides a useful background for all students, practioners, and researchers interested in the subject.

"Personal anecdotes enliven the writing and add a human touch; for graduate students, these will serve as important reminders that there is much to learn outside the laboratory."
