Global Change Biology

  • Description
  • Details

Promotes understanding of the interface between all aspects of current environmental change and biological systems, including rising tropospheric O3 and CO2 concentrations, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and eutrophication

Both biological responses and feedbacks to change are included in the journal, and may be considered at any level of organization from molecular to biome. Studies which integrate across levels of organization to provide a mechanistic understanding are also highlighted. Studies may be experimental, observational or theoretical, and may concern aquatic or terrestrial and managed or natural environments.

The journal defines global change as any consistent trend in the environment - past, present or projected - that affects a substantial part of the globe. Examples include:

- Rising tropospheric ozone, carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide concentrations
- Increasing UV-B irradiation
- Global climate change
- Biological sinks and sources of atmospheric trace gases
- Eutrophication and use change
- Loss of biodiversity
- Biological feedback on climate change
- Biological mitigation for atmospheric change
