This book provides an up-to-date review of the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide on agroecosystems, forests, and grasslands. It summarizes the main findings from 13 experiments with annual crops, permanent pastures and plantation forests at 11 sites throughout the world during the past ten years. The results significantly alter our perception of how rising CO2 will directly affect these managed ecosystems.

From the reviews:
"Noesberger at al. have compiled the current experimental knowledge of the effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment on managed ecosystems. ... As an overall judgement, `Management Ecosystems and CO2' can be recommended for anybody concerned with CO2 enrichment effects, from graduate students to senior researchers, as a valuable source of recent information. Reading also leaves some space to think about how we can further improve our knowledge." (Andreas Fangmeier, Basic and Applied Ecology, Issue 8, 2007)
