General Note:
"This book resulted from an initial consideration of these ideas during a meeting at the Granlibakken Conference Center, Lake Tahoe, California, sponsored by the National Science Foundation's EPSCoR Program to the State of Nevada and by the Electric Power Research Institute. The Desert Research Institute of the University of Nevada served as the host institution. ... This project is an activity of the Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystems of the International Biosphere Geosphere Program"--P. x1v.

The Granlibakken meeting was organized by Jeff Seemann and Tim Ball; Roger Kreidberg indexed the book.

This book focuses on the interactive effects of environmental stresses with plant and ecosystem functions, especially with respect to changes in the abundance of carbon dioxide. The interaction of stresses with elevated carbon dioxide are presented from the cellular through whole plant ecosystem level. The book carefully considers not only the responses of the above-ground portion of the plant, but also emphasizes the critical role of below-ground (rhizosphere) components (e.g., roots, microbes, soil) in determining the nature and magnitude of these interactions.
