520    Fascinating and diverse, savanna ecosystems support a 
       combination of pastoral and agropastoral communities 
       alongside wild and domestic herbivores that can be found 
       nowhere else. This diversity has made the study of these 
       areas problematic. Ecosystem Function in Savannas: 
       Measurement and Modeling at Landscape to Global Scales 
       addresses some of the discontinuities in the treatment of 
       savannas by the scientific community and documents a range
       of measurements, methods, technologies, applications, and 
       modeling approaches. Based on contributions from leading 
       authorities and experts on savanna systems worldwide, the 
       book describes the global savanna biome in terms of its 
       broad ecological properties, temporal dynamics, 
       disturbance levels, and human dimensions. The text 
       examines carbon, water, energy, and trace gas fluxes for 
       major global savanna regions. It looks at quantitative 
       surface properties of savannas that can be retrieved using
       remote sensing and numerical approaches used to explore 
       savanna dynamics. The authors also discuss how savanna 
       modeling and measurement approaches might be unified. By 
       presenting this confluence of information in a single 
       resource, the book provides a platform for examining 
       synergies, connections, integrative opportunities, and 
       complementarities among approaches and data sources. This 
       information can then be used to harmonize measurement and 
       modeling methods among scales and across disciplinary 
       boundaries. The book builds a bridge across the markedly 
       different perspectives on savannas by which ecologists, 
       biogeochemists, remote sensors, geographers, 
       anthropologists, and modelers approach their science
