Climate Change, Air Pollution and Global Challenges: Understanding and Perspectives from Forest Research [NOOK Book]

Overview

There are significant pressures from climate change and air pollution that forests currently face. This book aims to increase understanding of the state and potential of forest ecosystems to mitigate and adapt to climate change in a polluted environment. It reconciles process-oriented research, long-term monitoring and applied modeling through comprehensive forest ecosystem research. Furthermore, it introduces "forest super sites for research? for integrating soil, plant and atmospheric sciences and ...

Overview

There are significant pressures from climate change and air pollution that forests currently face. This book aims to increase understanding of the state and potential of forest ecosystems to mitigate and adapt to climate change in a polluted environment. It reconciles process-oriented research, long-term monitoring and applied modeling through comprehensive forest ecosystem research. Furthermore, it introduces "forest super sites for research” for integrating soil, plant and atmospheric sciences and monitoring. It also provides mechanistic and policy-oriented modeling with scientifically sound risk indications regarding atmospheric changes and ecosystem services.

  • Identifies current knowledge gaps and emerging research needs
  • Highlights novel methodologies and integrated research concepts
  • Assesses ecological meaning of investigations and prioritizing research need

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is the report from a 2009-13 study…to increase understanding of the state of forest ecosystems and their potential to mitigate and adapt to climate change in a polluted environment; and to reconcile process-oriented research, long-term monitoring, and applied modeling at comprehensive forest research sites to be established."--ProtoView.com, April 2014
