HUMAN ALTERATION OF THE GLOBAL NITROGEN CYCLE: SOURCES AND CONSEQUENCES
Nitrogen is a key element controlling the species composition, diversity, dynamics, and functioning of many terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. Many of the original plant species livingExpand
Agricultural sustainability and intensive production practices
A doubling in global food demand projected for the next 50 years poses huge challenges for the sustainability both of food production and of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and the services theyExpand
A framework for vulnerability analysis in sustainability science
TLDR
A vulnerability framework for the assessment of coupled human–environment systems is presented and it is shown that vulnerability is registered not by exposure to hazards alone but also resides in the sensitivity and resilience of the system experiencing such hazards. Expand
Principles of Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology
I. CONTEXT * The Ecosystem Concept * Earth's Climate System * Geology and Soils * II. MECHANISMS * Terrestrial Water and Energy Balance * Carbon Input to Terrestrial Ecosystems * TerrestrialExpand
Terrestrial ecosystem production: A process model based on global satellite and surface data
This paper presents a modeling approach aimed at seasonal resolution of global climatic and edaphic controls on patterns of terrestrial ecosystem production and soil microbial respiration. We useExpand
Agricultural intensification and ecosystem properties.
TLDR
The use of ecologically based management strategies can increase the sustainability of agricultural production while reducing off-site consequences and have serious local, regional, and global environmental consequences. Expand
HUMAN APPROPRIATION OF THE PRODUCTS OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS
TLDR
The figures reflect the current patterns of exploitation distribution and consumption of a much larger population; there must be limits to growth. Expand
Sustainability Science
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-analyses of the chiral stationary phase of the LaSalle-Seiden–Seiden virus, which has implications for the design of vaccines and their application in the treatment of infectious disease. Expand
A method for quantifying vulnerability, applied to the agricultural system of the Yaqui Valley, Mexico
Abstract We propose measuring vulnerability of selected outcome variables of concern (e.g. agricultural yield) to identified stressors (e.g. climate change) as a function of the state of theExpand
Process modeling of controls on nitrogen trace gas emissions from soils worldwide
We report on an ecosystem modeling approach that integrates global satellite, climate, vegetation, and soil data sets to (1) examine conceptual controls on nitrogen trace gas (NO, N2O, and N2)Expand
