    Biogeochemistry of Marine Systems

    1st Edition

    Edited by Kenneth D. Black, Graham B. Shimmield

    Marine systems vary in their sensitivities to perturbation. Perturbation may be insidious - such as increasing eutrophication of coastal areas - or it may be dramatic - such as a response to an oil spill or some other accident. Climate change may occur incrementally or it may be abrupt, and…

    Leaf Development and Canopy Growth

    1st Edition

    Edited by Bruce Marshall, Jeremy A. Roberts

    The focus of leaf development modeling in the last two decades has been on predicting commercial crop yields and identifying the constraints on them. The weakness of this approach: the implicit belief in the existence of a "global brain" deciding which parts of the plant are deficient and directing…
