This book examines the impacts of global change on terrestrial ecosystems. Emphasis is placed on impacts of atmospheric, climate and land use change, and the book discusses the future challenges and the scientific frameworks to address them. Finally, the book explores fundamental new research developments and the need for stronger integration of natural and human dimensions in addressing the challenge of global change.Community biomass can change regardless of the effect of CO2 due to succession alone. ... Although the effects of elevated CO2 on biodiversity may be less pronounced than those of other global change drivers such ...
