Kompakte Einführung in komplexe Ökosysteme mit zahlreichen Beispielen: Wie können Pflanzen unter speziellen Lebensbedingungen wachsen und sich vermehren? Wie verlanden Gewässer? Wie wirken sich Sukzessionen oder Störungen nach Stürmen, Bränden, Klimaänderungen aus? Organismen interagieren mit ihrer Umwelt auf verschiedenen Ebenen. Die fundamentale Einheit geobotanischer Studien ist der individuelle pflanzliche und mikrobielle Organismus. Seine evolutive Entwicklung ist das Ergebnis eines selektiven Prozesses und seiner Einnischung in spezifische Lebensräume. Die Autoren stellen die Beziehung von Klima, Boden und biotischen Interaktionen dar.

To understand climate change today, we first need to know how Earth’s climate changed over the past 450 million years. Finding answers depends upon contributions from a wide range of sciences, not just the rock record uncovered by geologists. In Earth’s Climate Evolution, Colin Summerhayes analyzes reports and records of past climate change dating back to the late 18th century to uncover key patterns in the climate system. The book will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about future climate change. The book takes a unique approach to the subject providing a description of the greenhouse and icehouse worlds of the past 450 million years since land plants emerged, ignoring major earlier glaciations like that of Snowball Earth, which occurred around 600 million years ago in a world free of land plants. It describes the evolution of thinking in palaeoclimatology and introduces the main players in the field and how their ideas were received and, in many cases, subsequently modified. It records the arguments and discussions about the merits of different ideas along the way. It also includes several notes made from the author’s own personal involvement in palaeoclimatological and palaeoceanographic studies, and from his experience of working alongside several of the major players in these fields in recent years. This book will be an invaluable reference for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in related fields and will also be of interest to historians of science and/or geology, climatology and oceanography. It should also be of interest to the wider scientific and engineering community, high school science students, policy makers, and environmental NGOs. Reviews: "Outstanding in its presentation of the facts and a good read in the way that it intersperses the climate story with the author's own experiences. [This book] puts the climate story into a compelling geological history." -Dr. James Baker "The book is written in very clear and concise prose, [and takes] original, enlightening, and engaging approach to talking about 'ideas' from the perspective of the scientists who promoted them." -Professor Christopher R. Scotese "A thrilling ride through continental drift and its consequences." - Professor Gerald R. North "Written in a style and language which can be easily understood by laymen as well as scientists." - Professor Dr Jörn Thiede "What makes this book particularly distinctive is how well it builds in the narrative of change in ideas over time." - Holocene book reviews, May 2016 "This is a fascinating book and the author’s biographical approach gives it great human appeal." - E Adlard

Paleoclimatology is a review of the history of the Earth's climate from the time of its formation four-and-a-half billion years ago to the present. The field, according to John Imbrie, a leading paleontologist at Brown University, is "ripe for synthesis," with broad implications in geology, geophysics, geochemistry, oceanography, and the atmospheric sciences. This book addresses several topics rarely discussed in paleoclimate summaries, including the modeling of Paleozoic climates and the environmental consequences of asteroid impacts. In addition, the book identifies areas for future research and offers a frame of reference for interpreting the likely consequences of greenhouse warming. A new chapter has been added updating the information since 1991.

In recent years there has been a movement to break down old disciplinary boundaries in the geosciences to develop a more unified view of the earth as an integrated system, but efforts to integrate solid earth and climate studies have not progressed as rapidly as other areas. Responding to this deficiency, this volume provides an in-depth examination of climate modeling--an area which can benefit enormously from the interaction between solid earth geophysical studies and climate studies. Written by eminent figures from both disciplines, this volume focuses on the role of tectonic boundary conditions for paleoclimate reconstructions. Chapters present background material on the impact of tectonic changes on climate, as well as the uncertainties in tectonic boundary conditions, such as positions of continents, height of mountains, depth of sea floor, among others.
