Major work reporting the results of an international scientific research programme which addressed the likely future changes to the world's vegetation (from natural ecosystems to intensively managed agricultural systems) as a result of alterations in land use and the effects of climate change. Among the special features of the book are descriptions of a dynamic global vegetation model, developing generic crop models and a special section on the emerging discipline of global ecology.
'! should be available and read by a large number of scientists, not only from biology and the geoscience.' Claus Buschmann, Journal of Plant Physiology 'All in all this is an up to date, well referenced book which all those concerned with climatic and other global changes should consult. I recommend the book.' Iam W. Drummond, OUGS Journal ' ! the volume by Walker and Steffen deserves a prominent place on the bookshelves of scientists dealing with terrestrial ecosystem aspects of global change.' Harald Bugmann, Progress in Physical Geography
