In past decades and in association with a continuing global industrial development, the global atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide has been rising. Among the many predictions made concerning this disturbing trend is global warming sufficient to melt polar ice-caps thereby dramatically altering existing shorelines. This book will help fill an obvious gap in the carbon dioxide debate by substituting date for speculation.

Back cover copy

The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing at an accelerating rate. As global levels of CO(subscript 2) increase, communities of plants and animals will respond significantly to these changes. The first of its kind, this book focuses on responses of populations and communities, as well as the resulting evolutionary responses, to elevated carbon dioxide levels. Serving as a companion to Carbon Dioxide and Terrestrial Ecosystems, this book reflects the expertise of an international team of researchers assembled to explore the important impacts of elevated atmospheric CO(subscript 2) concentrations. As carbon dioxide levels continue to rise, Carbon Dioxide, Populations, and Communities will become increasingly important as a source of baseline information on the effects of and responses to this invisible and critical greenhouse gas.
