  • Worrell Ernst; Ramesohl Stephan; Boyd Gale (Annual Reviews, 2004-11-01)
    ▪ Abstract  New energy efficiency policies have been introduced around the world. Historically, most energy models were reasonably equipped to assess the impact of classical policies, such as a subsidy or change in taxation. ...
  • Naylor Rosamond; Burke Marshall (Annual Reviews, 2005-11-01)
    ▪ Abstract  With continued human pressure on marine fisheries and ocean resources, aquaculture has become one of the most promising avenues for increasing marine fish production in the future. This review presents recent ...

  • Wang Guiling; Schimel David (Annual Reviews, 2003-11-01)
    ▪ Abstract  Variability of the atmospheric and oceanic circulations in the earth system gives rise to an array of naturally occurring dynamical modes. Instead of being spatially independent or spatially uniform, climate ...

    ▪ Abstract  The effect of anthropogenic emissions from activities, such as fossil-fuel, biomass, and biofuel burning; transportation; and land-clearing; have a profound impact on the climate system. The impact of these ...
  • Lambin Eric F.; Geist Helmut J.; Lepers Erika (Annual Reviews, 2003-11-01)
    ▪ Abstract  We highlight the complexity of land-use/cover change and propose a framework for a more general understanding of the issue, with emphasis on tropical regions. The review summarizes recent estimates on changes ...
  • Parkinson Claire L. (Annual Reviews, 2006-11-01)
