Rezensionen
Aus den Rezensionen: "... Das Werk gibt einen fundierten Einblick in den aktuellen Kenntnisstand einer Vielzahl von Aspekten der behandelten Thematik. Es zeigt, dass die verschiedenen Einflüsse von Klima- und Umweltänderungen auf terrestrische Ökosysteme zum Teil viel komplexer sind, als man es noch vor wenigen Jahren erwartet hätte. Dadurch ist dieses Werk nicht nur für Wissenschaftler und Entscheidungsträger bedeutsam, die sich mit dem Einfluss zukünftiger Klima- und Umweltänderungen auf Mensch und Umwelt beschäftigen, sondern auch für zahlreiche GeowissenschaftIer ..." (D. Uhl, in: Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie Teil II, 2007, Issue 5-6, S. 823 f.)
From the reviews:

"This volume integrates 25 contributors prepared by over 100 authors from around the world working under the auspices of the Programme. ... this book brings the IGBP research on terrestrial ecosystems to a wide scientific audience, and includes the latest developments and achievements in this area. ... The introductory and summary chapters are very valuable, rendering the book accessible to a general audience, not only to specialists. The book can also be highly recommended to the broad scientific community interested in global change." (Urszula Somorowska, Papers on Global Change, Issue 15, 2008)
