Description: Scaling biogeochemical processes to regions, continents, and the globe is critical for understanding feedbacks between the biosphere and atmosphere in the analysis of global change. This includes the effects of changing atmospheric carbon dioxide, climate, disturbances, and increasing nitrogen deposition from air pollution (Ehleringer and Field 1993, Vitousek et al. 1997). Quantification and uncertainty analysis of carbon pools and fluxes by terrestrial biota is needed to guide policy and management decisions. Unanswered questions include: (1) how and where is the terrestrial biosphere currently sequestering carbon? (2) how might forests be managed to maximize carbon sequestration? Managed carbon sequestration would have to be optimized within and among geographic regions with attention to how this might affect biodiversity and how to manage for the effects of "natural" disturbances on carbon storage and fluxes.
