Description

Net primary production links the biosphere and the climate system through the global cycling of carbon, water and nutrients. Accurate quantification of net primary productivity (NPP) is therefore critical in understanding the response of the world's ecosystems to global climate change, and how changes in ecosystems might themselves feed back to the climate system. Twelve model estimates of long-term annual NPP for the Australian continent were reviewed. These models varied considerably in the...[Show more]
