The purpose of the report is to summarize present knowledge in three areas: forest responses to climate change; the role of forest feedbacks to the atmosphere; and the potential of forest management to increase carbon sequestering. The report discusses these topics in the context of the global carbon cycle and the broader concept of managing the biosphere to offset increases in atmospheric CO2. New research results are presented on the effects of vegetation redistribution on terrestrial carbon pools.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 129-149).
