About this book

Reprinted from Ecological Research, Vol 20 (3), 2005.

From the publisher's announcement:

Coastal East and Southeast Asia are characterized by wet growing seasons, and species-rich forest ecosystems develop throughout the latitudinal and altitudinal gradients. In this region, the Global Change Impacts on Terrestrial Ecosystems in Monsoon Asia (TEMA) project was carried out as a unique contribution to the international project Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystems. TEMA aimed to integrate forest ecosystem processes, from leaf physiology to meteorological budget and prediction of long-term change of vegetation composition and architecture through demographic processes. Special attention was given to watershed processes, where forest ecosystem metabolism affects the properties and biogeochemical budgets of freshwater ecosystems, and where rivers, wetlands, and lakes are subject to direct and indirect effects of environmental change. This volume presents the scaling-up concept for better understanding of ecosystem functioning.


From the contentsPreface.- Integration of ecophysiological processes to stand dynamics.- Latitudinal/altitudinal transect of East Asia.- Monitoring and modeling atmosphere-forest-soil processes.- Forest-lake interface in watershed systems.- Subject Index.
