Carbon Dioxide and Terrestrial Ecosystems

The book Carbon Dioxide and Terrestrial Ecosystems addresses ground-breaking studies of carbon dioxide balances in ecosystems, regions, and across the entire globe. Economically important woody ecosystems are emphasized because they have substantial influence on global carbon dioxide balances. Herbaceous ecosystems (e.g., grasslands, prairies, wetlands) and crop ecosystems are also covered. The interactions among organisms, communities, and ecosystems are modeled, and the book closes with an important synthesis of this growing nexus of research.
