'... should be available and read by a large number of scientists, not only from biology and the geoscience.' Claus Buschmann, Journal of Plant Physiology

'All in all this is an up to date, well referenced book which all those concerned with climatic and other global changes should consult. I recommend the book.' Iam W. Drummond, OUGS Journal

' ... the volume by Walker and Steffen deserves a prominent place on the bookshelves of scientists dealing with terrestrial ecosystem aspects of global change.' Harald Bugmann, Progress in Physical Geography
