Ecological Climatology

Concepts and Applications

«Review of previous edition: 'Gordon Bonan's excellent Ecological Climatology … provides an up-to-date status report on ecosystem-climate interactions … across a broad range of disciplines. The text is clearly written and little specialized knowledge is required to read it … [This book] clearly outlines the scope of possibility for integrating the physics of climate, the biological principles of ecology, and the biogeochemical pathways that link atmosphere and land surface.' David S. Gutzler, Natural Resources Journal»

The third edition of Gordon Bonan's comprehensive textbook introduces an interdisciplinary framework to understand the interaction between terrestrial ecosystems and climate change. Ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying ecology, environmental science, atmospheric science, and geography, it reviews basic meteorological, hydrological, and ecological concepts to examine the physical, chemical, and biological processes by which terrestrial ecosystems affect and are affected by climate.

The third edition of Gordon Bonan's comprehensive textbook introduces an interdisciplinary framework to understand the interaction between terrestrial ecosystems and climate change. Ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying ecology, environmental science, atmospheric science, and geography, it reviews basic meteorological, hydrological, and ecological concepts to examine the physical, chemical, and biological processes by which terrestrial ecosystems affect and are affected by climate. This new edition has been thoroughly updated with new science and references. The scope has been expanded beyond its initial focus on energy, water, and carbon to include reactive gases and aerosols in the atmosphere. The new edition emphasizes the Earth as a system, recognizing interconnections among the planet's physical, chemical, biological, and socioeconomic components, and emphasizing global environmental sustainability. Each chapter contains chapter summaries and review questions, and with over 400 illustrations, including many in color, this textbook will once again be an essential student guide.

«Review of previous edition: '… [this book] successfully integrates fundamental concepts in climatology and ecology … I highly recommend [it] for climatologists and meteorologists interested in better understanding the role of vegetation in the climate system, or ecologists and plant physiologists interested in better understanding the role of the climate system in vegetated ecosystems.' Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society»

«Review of previous edition: '… extremely well-written, and even the more technical parts are accessible to a non-specialist.' Pam Berry, Environmental Conservation»

«Review of previous edition: '… highly recommended for students in the atmospheric sciences and physical geography, and for reference libraries … I congratulate Cambridge University Press on the quality of their workmanship in bringing this manuscript to publication.' Ted Munn, Bulletin of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society»

«Review of previous edition: 'The well-organized second edition of Ecological Climatology can serve as a basic guide for advanced students to help them visualize the relationship between climate change and ecosystem responses and services.' V. G. Kakani, Choice»
