From the Publisher"A comprehensive review of the science of climate change, the impacts of climate change on biological and human systems, and their interrelatedness. An excellent contribution to the growing recognition that knowledge of biological and human systems is needed to understand climate change."
Gordon Bonan, National Center for Atmospheric Research
"… readers gain an appreciation of the wide-ranging consequences of climate change with many examples and analogies … it is a book a climate scientist, or any concerned citizen of the world, should read."
Paul A. Dirmeyer, George Mason University
"Chapter 1 is an excellent primer on the causes of climate change … the core of the volume is three chapters that ambitiously summarize climate changes from 4.6 billion years ago to the present … Highly recommended."
D. Goldblum, Choice
"Read this book and gain a new perspective on climate change. This is above all an interdisciplinary topic, and hard to grasp in all its essentials by those of us brought up in the old-fashioned 'single discipline' mode of instruction. Few people have put together in such a compelling and reader-friendly way the full extent of information about climate change and its effects, ranging all the way from changes with geological time to real or potential impacts on human health and welfare and on plant and animal life … This is an invaluable, readable and well-referenced guide to where we are now, how we got here, what is happening now, what may happen next, and what we can do about it."
Colin Summerhayes, Geoscientist
"… a useful synthesis of recent literature for undergraduates."
A. M. Mannion, The Biologist
"This book provides a reasonable synopsis of the material available on climatic change and is thus a useful addition to the literature … a reasonable price for a good-sized text."
Antoinette Mannion, BES Bulletin
