Summary
Abstract: This package contains a computerized database used to generate a
global vegetation map of 44 different land ecosystem complexes
comprising seven broad groups. The database and accompanying map
provides a basis for making improved estimates of vegetation areas
and carbon quantities, of natural biological exchanges of CO2, and,
eventually, of the net historic shifts of ... View entire text
