Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 124)


The analysis of the state and dynamics of modern ecosystems has to be reconciled with palaeoecological investigations, providing a reliable retrospective base for forecasting future trends of impacts. Such an approach is extremely useful for the realization of international scientific programs like IGBP in any regions, including high latitude ones.
