The Purdue Climate Change Research Center mission is to increase scientific and public understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change through interdisciplinary research and effective education and outreach. We are committed to science-based, non-partisan, and collaborative analysis to support real-world decision making from the. Human expansion throughout the world caused that agriculture is a dominant form of land management globally. Human influence on the land is accelerating because of rapid population growth and increasing food requirements. To stress the interactions between society and the environment, the driving forces (D), pressures (P), states (S), impacts (I), and response (R) Cited by: 7.
Carbon sequestration, the long-term storage of carbon in plants, soils, geologic formations, and the ocean. In response to concerns about climate change resulting from increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere, interest has been drawn to geoengineering techniques such as carbon capture and storage. Forests absorb and store planet-warming carbon dioxide. They are also extremely vulnerable in the era of climate change. Europe is a case in point. By Somini Sengupta. A Battle to Protect Forests.

Global Change and Forest Soils: Cultivating Stewardship of a Finite Natural Resource, Vol provides a state-of-the-science summary and synthesis of global forest soils that identifies concerns, issues and opportunities for soil adaptation and mitigation as external pressures from global changes arise.
Where, how and why some soils are resilient to global change while. Book Description. This volume provides valuable information for students, academics and practitioners with an interest in how forests respond to global change phenomena such as climate, atmospheric composition, land-use change and forest fragmentation.
Presenting research from temperate and tropical ecosystems, the authors highlight their latest 5/5(1). Book description. Forests hold a significant proportion of global biodiversity and terrestrial carbon stocks and are at the forefront of human-induced global change.
The dynamics and distribution of forest vegetation determines the habitat for other organisms, and regulates the delivery of ecosystem services, including carbon storage.

Forests and Global Change Edited by David A. Coomes, David F. Burslem, William D. Simonson. Title: Book of abstracts of the IUFRO Landscape Ecology Working Group International Conference: Forest Landscapes and Global Change ‐ New Frontiers in Management, Conservation and Restoration.
Editors: João Carlos Azevedo, Manuel Feliciano, José Castro & Maria Alice PintoFile Size: 6MB. Derived from a report that provides technical input to the U.S. Global Change Research Program National Climate Assessment, the book serves as a framework for managing U.S. forest resources in the context of climate change.
Global Environmental Change is a peer-reviewed international journal publishing high quality, theoretically and empirically rigorous articles, which advance knowledge about the human and policy dimensions of global environmental change.
The journal interprets global environmental change to mean the outcome of processes that are manifest in. This book will be of interest to students and academics across the fields of climate change governance, forestry, development studies, and political economy.
It will also be a useful resource for policy makers and practitioners responsible for forestry and climate change. Book Description. Forestry today, like many other sectors that traditionally rely on material goods, faces significant global drivers of societal change that are less often addressed than the environmental concerns commonly in the spotlight of scientific, political, and news media.

It drew participants from the US, Canada, and outside of North America. Participants were welcomed by. Community forest management is one of the successful stories of green economy sectors in Nepal recognized by the United Nation Environment Programme. It was initiated in Nepal to mitigate increasing deforestation and forest degradation and address the negative impacts on rural livelihoods.
Different studies are conducted by researchers to assess the role of community forest Author: K C Anup. Global climate change may have a serious impact on genetic resources in tropical forest trees.
