Modeling Responses to [CO2] and Temperature

  • Dieter Overdieck
Part of the Ecological Research Monographs book series (ECOLOGICAL)


All the updated modeling methods that were used for data evaluation in this book are described, and a special model is presented covering the complete CO2 and H2O gas exchange of small tree stands in soil-litter-plant systems (model ecosystems).
