Climate Research Vol. 3 Nos. 1-2 (1993)

Management of the terrestrial biosphere to sequester atmospheric CO2


Publication date: August 30, 1993

Guest Editors:

Sandra Henderson and Robert K. Dixon



This Climate Research Special is a major compilation of papers which includes work by scientists with expertise in the carbon dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems. The contributions cover carbon models, agroforestry, land management considerations, economic and policy implications, and the need for public education.


The Special represents the most comprehensive coverage to date of current thinking by scientists engaged in research addressing the management of the terrestrial biosphere to sequester atmospheric CO2
