MEDIA REVIEWS
'... should be available and read by a large number of scientists, not only from biology and the geoscience.' Claus Buschmann, Journal of Plant Physiology
'All in all this is an up to date, well referenced book which all those concerned with climatic and other global changes should consult. I recommend the book.' Iam W. Drummond, OUGS Journal
' ... the volume by Walker and Steffen deserves a prominent place on the bookshelves of scientists dealing with terrestrial ecosystem aspects of global change.' Harald Bugmann, Progress in Physical Geography
"This is a very useful compendium of articles on all aspects of the relationship between climate change and the health of ecosystems...Taken together, the various chapters represent one of the best collections of review articles on the science of climate change and the implications for terrestrial ecosystems...[T]he book is highly recommended." The Quarterly Review of Biology

"The book focuses on what we need to know in order to understand our planet better...there is much variation in the value of its 28 chapters, which are arranged in five sections (Ecosystem physiology; Ecosystem structure; Agriculture, forestry and soils; Ecological complexity; and Earth system science)." William H. Schlesinger, American Scientist
"Many of the chapters will be of interest to researchers beyond climate change, especially those with a general interest in landscape and ecosystem dynamics, modelling, and analysis." Environments
