    Description

    Global climate chagnge is a complex and controversial subject, both technically and politically. Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations concluded that "the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate" and that "further accumulation of greenhouse gases will commit the earth irreversibly to global climate change with its consequent ecological, economic, and social disruption" (Houghton et al., 1996: Brown et al., 1997; Kerr, 1997). One of the concerns is that changing climate will have major effects on future forest composition, productivity, sustainability, and biological as well as genetic diversity (Houghton et al., 1996).
