ecological climatology

Quick Reference

An interdisciplinary approach to the role of terrestrial ecosystems in the climate system. The central theme is that terrestrial ecosystems, through their cycling of energy, water, chemical elements, and trace gases, are important determinants of climate (G. Bonan2002; but see Beerling (2003) Trends Ecol. Evol. 18, 2).
