About this book

Climate change shaped the political agenda during the last decade with three issues as hot topics: commonly making the headlines: carbon budgets, impact and mitigation of climate change.

Given the significant role that forests play in the climate system – as sources, sinks, and through carbon trading – Managing Forest Ecosystems: The Challenge of Climate Change update the current scientific evidences on the relationships between climate, forest resources and forest management practices around the world.

By including the forest scientists' expertise from around the world, Managing Forest Ecosystems: The Challenge of Climate Change presents and updates a depth analysis of the current knowledge, and a series of case studies focused on the biological and the economic impacts of climate change in forest ecosystems in Africa, Asia, Europe and North and South America.

Managing Forest Ecosystems: The Challenge of Climate Change will form a valuable resource for researchers and advanced students dealing with sustainable forestry, climate change issues and the effects of climate change on natural resource management.
