Forests hold a significant proportion of global biodiversity and terrestrial carbon stocks and are at the forefront of human-induced global change. The dynamics and distribution of forest vegetation determine the habitat for other organisms, and regulate the delivery of Price Range: £ - £ Global Change and Forest Soils: Cultivating Stewardship of a Finite Natural Resource, Vol provides a state-of-the-science summary and synthesis of global forest soils that identifies concerns, issues and opportunities for soil adaptation and mitigation as external pressures from global changes Price: $ Advances in forest management will enhance the sustainable development of human society, and should be focused on. Under the context of global change, soil nutrients, especially nitrogen, should be carefully managed and monitored in plantations experiencing intensive nitrogen input, and forests with exotic plant invasion disturbance, considering its substantial contribution to global nitrous Author: Ling Zhang. Climate change, land use change, and many other drivers of landscape modification are occurring at increasing rates globally. They affect ecological patterns and processes in forest landscapes, and modify ecosystem services derived from those ecosystems. All of this presents many new challenges to scientists and managers.

Yet some 13 Mha of forest is lost each year, mostly in the tropics (Canadell & Raupach ).Cited by: 1. Climate Change and Forests provides a realistic view of the role that the forest and land-use sector can play in a post-Kyoto regime. It will serve as a practical reference manual for anyone. in Diana Beresford-Kroeger's highly edifying, detailed and accessible exploration on the life of trees, plants and creatures in the global forests of planet Earth. The author's message in her work, and in this book, is that it is vital for nature's survival as a healthy environment/5.

Each of the 15 chapters of Forests and Global Change are written by authors who presented data to an Ecological Society symposium. The first of three parts is on forest dynamics and global change, the second on species traits and responses to changing resource availability, and the third on detecting and modelling global change.
