"It is written clearly and accessibly...This edited volume is uniquely multidisciplinary and is far better written and organized than typical hardcover collections of papers from climate workshops...It succeeds in providing our climate science community with a valuable and engaging current view of our understanding of how the Earth's coupled climate system functioned in the past and how we may expect it to behave in the near future." Bulletin of the AMS
"The authors of the chapters are all highly respected scientists, and this volume thus represents a valuable integration of scientific thinking and research." Choice
"The contributions span the full range of information and utility.... The book offers a wonderful chance for a glimpse of some distinguished scholars and their interpretations of the current biophysical status of the Earth." The Quarterly Review of Biology
Geosphere-Biosphere Interactions and Climate brings together many of the world's leading environmental scientists to discuss the interaction between the geosphere/biosphere and climate. The volume arises from a working group of the prestigious Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. The chapters give a state-of-the-art summary of our current understanding of climate issues. It will be invaluable for researchers and graduate students in climate studies who wish to gain a multidisciplinary perspective of our current understanding of the interaction between the geosphere/biosphere and climate.
