About this book

Over 100 authors present 25 contributions on the impacts of global change on terrestrial ecosystems including:
- critical impacts on processes of the earth system such as the effects of increasing CO2 on the net carbon uptake, and changes in functional biodiversity,
- impacts on ecosystem services such as wheat production and carbon storage in croplands, and
- impacts on the most sensitive regions in the world including the high latitudes and Southeast Asia.

Finally, the book explores fundamental new research developments such as identifying spatial thresholds and nonlinearities, the key role of urban development in global biogeochemical processes, and the need for stronger integration of natural and human dimensions in addressing the challenge of global change.

Media reviews

" [...] Das Werk gibt einen fundierten Einblick in den aktuellen Kenntnisstand einer Vielzahl von Aspekten der behandelten Thematik. Es zeigt, dass die verschiedenen Einflusse von Klima- und Umweltanderungen auf terrestrische Okosysteme zum Teil viel komplexer sind, als man es noch vor wenigen Jahren erwartet hatte. Dadurch ist dieses Werk nicht nur fur Wissenschaftler und Entscheidungstrager bedeutsam, die sich mit dem Einfluss zukunftiger Klima- und Umweltanderungen auf Mensch und Umwelt beschaftigen, sondern auch fur zahlreiche GeowissenschaftIer [...]"
