Global change and life on Earth: reciprocal effects in a walk from genes to biosphere
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Ian Henderson.
I will present local, regional and global responses of organisms, communities and ecosystems to global change, especially to atmospheric and climate change, at different temporal (mostly for the last, current and future decades) and spatial scales (from genes to the biosphere). Genetic, phenotypic, demographic, community and ecosystemic responses will be considered. The reciprocal effects of all these changes on atmosphere and climate through the consequent biophysical and biogeochemical changes will provide an overview of the importance of the biosphere in the Earth system and climate. New tools to monitor these processes will be also presented.
