Dynamics focuses on long-term terrestrial ecosystems and their
changing relationships with human societies. The unique aspect of
this text is the long-time scale under consideration as data and
insights from the last 10,000 years are used to place present-day
ecosystem status into a temporal perspective and to test models that
generate forecasts of future conditions.
assessments of some of the current modelling tools
that are used, along with their uncertainties and assumptions, are an
important feature of this book.
An overarching theme explores the dynamic interactions between human
societies and ecosystem functioning and services.
This book is authoritative but accessible and provides a useful
background for all students, practitioners, and researchers
in the subject.
