The subject coverage of this exciting resource focuses on all aspects of the effects of climate change on the terrestrial and freshwater biosphere, mitigation strategies and other adverse influences of humans on the environment, including: 

Adaptation and mitigation strategies including:
  • Energy resources from forests/plantations and crops (fuel-wood and biofuels)
  • Creation of habitat corridors to allow migration of species affected by climate change
  • Adoption of cropping systems that sequester carbon
  • Restoration ecology of habitats damaged by man's activities
  • Bioremediation agroforestry and exploitation of non-wood
  • Forest products (as an economic alternative to logging)
  • Conservation of fauna and flora
Climate change affecting:
  • All terrestrial vegetation types, and freshwater and some aspects of coastal marine habitats (including tourism, recreation, and fisheries management)
  • Water resources (all aspects including management, sustainability, hydrology)
  • Soils (all aspects including the formation, degradation, fertility, chemistry, methane emissions, biology, residue management, tillage)
  • Crop production (direct effects and indirect effects)
  • Pests and diseases affecting crops and vegetation types
  • Agrometeorology and climatology
  • Human and animal health (e.g. spread of diseases, disease vectors, changing patterns of air pollution, thermal stresses on livestock, etc)
  • Economic aspects (policy, trade, crop seasonality affecting trade) and rural development/demography (e.g.migration and land resources)
  • Tourism (winter sports agroforestry and non-wood forest products)
Other anthropogenic effects on the biosphere including:
  • Deforestation
  • Pollution (including air pollution)
  • Habitat loss
  • Watershed stability
  • Land diversion
  • Loss of land due to urban development
  • Species losses due to human activities
