  • Genetics and Genomics of Populus

    Genetics and Genomics of Populus

    Trees are truly amazing! Woody species underpin vital terrestrial ecosystems, present a complex array of evolutionary novelties, and provide essential benefits and commodities. Trees play a key role in the major biogeochemical cycles, including water, oxygen, and nitrogen. Notably, forests are second only to oceans in the biological sequestration of carbon, and forests are recognized for their vital role in regulating the concentration of the ...

  • Vegetation-Climate Interaction

    Vegetation-Climate Interaction

    This book offers a readable and accessible account of the way in which the world's plant life partly controls its own environment. Starting from the broad patterns in vegetation which have classically been seen as a passive response to climate, the authors build up from the local scale - with microclimates produced by plants - to the regional and global scale. The influence of plants (both on land and in the ocean) in making clouds, haze and ...

  • Climate Under Cover

    Climate Under Cover

    This book gives a full description of the simulation techniques used in the greenhouse industry, including different environments from mulching to greenhouses. Another important topic discussed at length is the relationship between plants and the environment. An emphasis is put on the relationship between quantitative phenomena and qualitative analyses. Most of the phenomena involved are non-linear and non-steady-state. In this second edition we ...

  • CO2 and Biosphere

    CO2 and Biosphere

    An international workshop on 'CO2 and Biosphere' was held in Wageningen, the Netherlands on 15-19 November 1991 as part of the activities of the CO2 Commission of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research: this volume includes 32 papers presented at the workshop. The CO2 Commission stimulates and coordinates a broad range of research projects related to the greenhouse effect. This is reflected in the scope of papers presented, ...

  • Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases: Why and How to Control?

    Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases: Why and How to Control?

    This is the first book dedicated to the non-CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGGs), notably methane, nitrous oxide, CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs and tropospheric ozone and its precursors. It covers all aspects of these components in global warming and discusses possible remedies. It also contains the Conference Statement, which summarizes our present knowledge. The book includes studies directed towards sources and sinks of NCGGs, atmospheric measurements ...
