Griffiths (plant sciences, U. of Cambridge, UK) and Jarvis (geosciences, U. of Edinburgh, UK) have edited 16 papers presented at an international symposium held during the annual meeting of the Society for Experimental Biology, hosted in conjunction with the British Ecological Society in Southampton in April 2003. The papers address the role of vegetation in sequestering carbon, with a focus throughout on global warming. Topics include practical issues for implementing the Kyoto Protocol; the size, magnitude, and endurance of potential sinks in global carbon budgets; regional potential in agricultural and forested areas of the UK; methods and models for measurement in various types of biomes; components of carbon balance within forest biomes; revised estimates of global fluxes contrasting forest and peatland biomes; and the future potential of carbon sequestration.
