Fire in the tropical biota : ecosystem processes and global challenges by J. G Goldammer( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph covers the impact and role of fire in tropical ecosystems. It also studies the impact of tropical wildland fires and biomass burning on global ecosystem processes. In the first part, regional contributions cover the origin and the ecological effects of fire in the main tropical vegetation types of Asia, Latin America, Australia and Africa. Both the prehistorical and the historical perspectives are added in order to clarify the role of man in the evolution of tropical wildland fire regimes. The magnitude and impact of today's escalating tropical vegetation degradation by fire is described by contributions on remote sensing. The quality of emissions from biomass burning and an overall pantropical assessment of gaseous emissions from vegetation burning highlight their impact on a changing global atmosphere. The final chapter demonstrates that global climate change may itself have considerable effects on vegetation and fire regimes. What is new is a multi-disciplinary approach to tropical and global fire ecology. For the first time, the reader will find comprehensive original information as well as secondary sources on wildland fire phenomena and fire problems in the tropics
Tropical forests in transition : ecology of natural and anthropogenic disturbance processes by J. G Goldammer( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In evolutionary time scales natural disturbances have affected the vegetation on Earth. During the Quaternary the forest biomes of the tropics were subjected to manifold disturbances. Climate changes and climate oscillations were associated with changing precipitation and drought regimes, flooding, siltation, landslides, etc. The prehistorical forest was also influenced by the effects of large wildlife populations. Large-scale catastrophies in the forest biomes were mainly caused by abiotic environmental alterations, the small-scale disturbances were and still are related to both biotic and abiotic processes. Both the large-and the small-scale disturbances have played a significant role in shaping distribution, dynamics, structure and composition of the paleoforest. After the expansion of hominids and early humans, and later, by modern humans, the anthropogenic influences on the tropical forest began to overlap natural disturbances. Today's anthropogenic impacts on the tropical forests differ qualitatively and quanitatively from the natural disturbances. The speed of tropical deforestation and savannization is dramatically increasing. The physical and chemical impacts of forest conversion and biomass burning add to other anthropogenic influences on the atmosphere and climate. The expected anthropogenic climate change will also have considerable impacts on the tropical flora and fauna. The book on "Tropical Forests in Transition" synthesizes information on changing environmental conditions and human impacts on the tropical forest by looking back to the paleoecology, analyzing the impact of modern human populations and modeling the future of the tropical forest in a changing environment. The aim of the book is to strengthen multidisciplinary thinking in disturbance ecology

Fire in ecosystems of boreal Eurasia by J. G Goldammer( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume is the first monograph published in English in which the accumulated state of wildland fire science in the boreal forest zone of Eurasia is systematically analyzed. The volume is mainly based on research achievements from the former Soviet Union and on ongoing programs of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Selected contributions from fire ecology, remote sensing and atmospheric chemistry from boreal Fennoscandia and North America provide the latest state of research and the link to the global importance of fire in the boreal zone. In the context of global change research, boreal fire science is receiving increasing attention, e.g. related to prehistoric, historic and modern influences of fire on vegetation dynamics, the role of fire in the atmosphere, biogeochemical cycles and climate (carbon cycle, chemistry of the free troposphere and stratosphere, e.g. tropospheric ozone increase, stratospheric ozone depletion). The volume provides a basic analysis for upcoming international and interdisciplinary studies at regional and global scale, e.g. in the frame of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), particularly the IGBP Northern Eurasia Study, and the activities of the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA)

Feuer in Waldökosystemen der Tropen und Subtropen by J. G Goldammer( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sediment records of biomass burning and global change( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biomass burning profoundly affects atmospheric chemistry, the carbon cycle, and climate and may have done so for millions of years. Bringing together renowned experts from paleoecology, fire ecology, atmospheric chemistry, and organic chemistry, the volume elucidates the role of fire during global changes of the past and future. Topics covered include: the characterization of combustion products that occur in sediments, including char, soot/fly ash, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; the calibration of these constituents against atmospheric measurements from wildland and prescribed fire emissions; spatial and temporal patterns in combustion emissions at scales of individual burns to the globe

Global and regional vegetation fire monitoring from space : planning a coordinated international effort by Frank J Ahern( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction Increasing conflagrations of forests and other lands throughout the world during the 1980s and 1990s have made fires in forest and other vegetation emerge as an important global concern. Both the number and severity of wildfires (accidental fires) and the application of fire for land-use change, seem to have increased dramatically compared to previous decades of the twentieth century. The adverse consequences of extensive wildfires cross national boundaries and have global impacts. Fire regimes are changing with climate variability and population dynamics. Satellite remote sensin
