9780691151953: Climate and Ecosystems

How does life on our planet respond to--and shape--climate? This question has never been more urgent than it is today, when humans are faced with the daunting task of guiding adaptation to an inexorably changing climate. This concise, accessible, and authoritative book provides an unmatched introduction to the most reliable current knowledge about the complex relationship between living things and climate. Using an Earth System framework, David Schimel describes how organisms, communities of organisms, and the planetary biosphere itself react to and influence environmental change. While much about the biosphere and its interactions with the rest of the Earth System remains a mystery, this book explains what is known about how physical and chemical climate affect organisms, how those physical changes influence how organisms function as individuals and in communities of organisms, and ultimately how climate-triggered ecosystem changes feed back to the physical and chemical parts of the Earth System. An essential introduction, Climate and Ecosystems shows how Earth's living systems profoundly shape the physical world.

Book Description:

"Schimel has been studying the climate-ecosystem interface for more than 30 years, and the book's level of authority reflects his expertise. Nonetheless, it is quite personable in tone and highly accessible to undergraduate students. It seems to cover the territory quite thoroughly, beginning with a very brief introduction to climate generally." --Choice

"The author does an admirable job of presenting a highly complex field of study in an extraordinarily accessible manner. . . . [It] will find immediate application in my own undergraduate course on climate change ecology. . . . It should be accessible to upper-level undergraduate students, and most certainly will be to beginning graduate students. As I write this, I am already mentally revising the syllabus for my senior-level course to incorporate much of the material from this book, and I intend to recommend it wholeheartedly to colleagues." --Eric Post, Quarterly Review of Biology
