  • Remote Sensing of Biosphere Functioning
    Remote Sensing of Biosphere Functioning (English, Paperback) Richard J. Hobbs

    The global change program will call for coordinated measure- ments on a global scale of those interactive physical and biological pro- cesses that regulate the earth system. The task, however, is not only to document global change, which will be an enormous job, but also to understand the significance of these changes to the biosphere.

  • Novel Ecosystems - Intervening in the New Ecological World Order
    Novel Ecosystems - Intervening in the New Ecological World Order (English, Hardback) Richard J. Hobbs, Eric S. Higgs
