To predict the effects of changes on climate, atmospheric composition, and land use on terrestrial ecosystems, including agriculture, forestry and soils, as well as ecological complexity.

Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystems

wheat, rice with the associated pests and diseases and biogeochemical consequences; iv the links between ecosystem functioning and biodiversity, and associated ecosystem stability, resilience, and buffering capacity to natural and human perturbations.

GCTE focused on the following issues: i the terrestrial carbon cycle with an emphasis on underlying drivers and processes of contemporary and future carbon quantities fluxes and pools ; ii vegetation dynamics and the processes that control them at the local and global scales, with an emphasis on landscape processes and patterns that dominate vegetation dynamics; iii impacts of global change on food production systems including the major species that provide the bulk of food to humanity e.

The GCTE International Project Office was kindly hosted byAustralia throughout its activity period with generous financial support from the Australian Department for Industry, Science and Resources.

GCTE was terminated in 2003 but its science and scientific community are contributing to the current Global Land Projecta core project under IGBP-II.

To determine how these effects lead to feedbacks to the atmosphere and the physical climate system. The subsequent evolution and development of satellites for Earth observation has been intricately linked with that of IGBP and other global-change research programmes, write Jack Kaye and Cat Downy.
