Tropical Rainforest Responses to Climatic Change

Mark B. Bush and John R. Flenley

Tropical Rainforest Responses to Climatic ChangeIt is commonly acknowledged that the tropical rainforests play a vital part in the sustainability of the Earth’s ecosystems and that the enhanced greenhouse effect in these regions is having an effect on this relationship.

Tropical Rainforest Responses to Climatic Change is the first book to investigate how tropical rainforest ecology is altered by climate change, rather than simply how plant communities are altered. A major theme is the interaction between humans, climate and forest ecology, and the book explicitly explores the effects of long-term occupation of tropical systems. It also looks at the future climatic effects of deforestation, coupled with anthropogenic emissions.
