Abstract

This book forms one of a series of thirteen Ecological reviews published by Cambridge University Press. It comprises fifteen scientific review papers by invited experts on aspects of the topic of the impact of global change in forests. The articles cover a variety of approaches, with some describing the more general aspects of change in forests and others being specific to particular situations, but which have a wider relevance. The collection begins with an introductory paper on forests and global change and the remaining articles are divided into three broad sections; the first being Forest Dynamics and Global Change, the second, Species Traits and Responses to Changing Resource Availability and the third, Detecting and Modelling Global Change. The strength of this collection is the variety of topics covered, the expertise of the authors and the up-to-date information it contains. The book would make a valuable addition to the library of any forest scientist or advanced student with an interest in the link between changes in our environment and forests.
