Encyclopedia of Global Environmental Change by Harold A. Mooney

Book Description

Volume 2 of the Encyclopedia of Global Environmental Change deals with the fundamental science that underpins the understanding of quantities and processes that control the basic biogeochemical cycles, and the associated changes in ecosystem physiology and structure under current and predicted human-driven global environmental change. These changes also include the dramatic loss of species, and the world's reorganization of biota towards higher homogenization. Main themes covered includes:* spatial scales of the biosphere including species, populations, communities, ecosystems, biomes, and the Earth system as a whole * a description of the most important efforts of a number of international programs, fundamental in the development of thinking in this new field of science The new understanding provided in this volume forms the basic building blocks allowing:* integration of the biospheric processes and quantities with the Earth's physical system into one single Earth system* detection of changes in the world's ecosystems' function and structure, both as already visible impacts of global change and also as indicators of change* development of the capability to predict impacts on the biosphere brought about by global environmental changes over the next few decades to century. The information within this volume will enable scientists to develop the technical capabilities and policy tools to mitigate and adapt to undesirable changes.

Books By Author Harold A. Mooney

Ecosystems of California by Harold A. Mooney Ecosystems of California, Hardback (February 2016)

With a comprehensive synthesis of our knowledge about this biologically diverse state, this book covers the state from oceans to mountaintops using multiple lenses: past and present, flora and fauna, aquatic and terrestrial, natural and managed.

Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests by Harold A. Mooney Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests, Paperback (February 2011)

Though seasonally dry tropical forests are equally as important to global biodiversity as tropical rainforests, and are one of the most representative and highly endangered ecosystems in Latin America, knowledge about them remains limited. This book seeks to address this shortcoming.

Livestock in a Changing Landscape by Harold A. Mooney Livestock in a Changing Landscape, Paperback (March 2010)

Presents sustainable approaches to the challenges created by fundamental shifts in livestock management and production. This book is suitable for policymakers, industry managers, and academics involved with this issue.

Bioinvasions and Globalization by Harold A. Mooney Bioinvasions and Globalization, Hardback (December 2009)

This volume addresses the issue of biological invasions from both an ecological and economic perspective, providing an in-depth evaluation of the science and its implications for managing the causes and consequences of one of the most pressing environmental issues facing humans today.
