  • 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 ...

  • Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases: Scientific Understanding, Control and Implementation

    In the climate change discussion, non-CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGGs) received official political recognition for the first time in 1997, when agreement was reached on the Kyoto Protocol. As a result methane, nitrous oxide, HFCs, PFCs and SF6 now provide attractive options for detailing the national targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas ...

  • Forests and energy. Key issues (En)

    Forest and energy are at the centre of the global debate on climate change. Soaring energy consumption and prices, and increasing greenhouse gas emission, represent a major opportunity and challenge for the forestry sector to find a new role in energy supply, climate change and sustainable development. This publication will be useful to both ...

  • 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 ...

  • Ecological Basis of Agroforestry

    Faced with the growing problems of climate change, ecosystem degradation, declining agricultural productivity, and uncertain food security, modern agricultural scientists look for potential relief in an ancient practice. Agroforestry, if properly designed, can mitigate greenhouse effects, maintain ecosystem health and biodiversity, provide food ...
