Abstract

A climate, vegetation, and soils data set for the United States, assembled by the Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP), is now available on CD-ROM and online. VEMAP is an international, multiinstitutional collaboration with the goal of evaluating the sensitivity of ecosystem structure and function to altered climate, CO2, and other forcings.
