Weather switch is progressively more thought of to be an enormous worldwide environmental hazard. The above pointed out convention used to be the concluding a part of a brand new programme prepared within the Netherlands with the intention to stimulating participation of Dutch scientists within the foreign study attempt about the challenge of weather swap. The lawsuits of the Maastricht convention on weather swap examine disguise a variety of matters including:* key notice papers of the world over major scientists on appropriate points of the weather problem* checks of NRP-research at the weather method, the explanations of power switch within the process, the prospective results and effects of weather swap, and replacement responses (including technological and/or social) which are thought of in the context of sustainable development* brief papers of the NRP- and similar tasks with ultimate conclusions in step with projectThis publication should be of price to someone professionally drawn to some of the features of weather switch examine and coverage.

Although models could not explain all results, they clearly helped to show the great importance of the timing of local weather (temperature levels, drought) relative to the development stage of the crop. The generally observed reduction of nitrogen concentrations in the plant biomass was confirmed in our experiments. Therefore the nitrogen harvest (per land area) increased less than the biomass did. Water use efficiency In the experimental conditions (optimal water and nutrients) water use efficiency (biomass produced per unit water transpired) was enhanced, but total seasonal water use (per square meter) did not significantly change because of a larger (transpiring) biomass.

A transient climate scenario was constructed using a 100 year r a m p to the 2 x CO2 temperature level (mean GCM outcome). Rainfall was 693 modified according to temperature relations, keeping the number of rainy days constant. 3). Net Primary Production 15 B. pubescens F. sylvatica Q. ,, v--? - '~,10 '7" N5 ! 3 Model prediction of productivity of birch, beech and oak forest under various (GCM-)climate change scenarios Concluding remarks Primary productivity models, largely based on correlative relationships, can be used to estimate forest ecosystem productivity in present conditions.

692 Bud burst and frost damage Based on an analysis of tree clones transferred over Europe, it is argued t h a t the survival of trees is curtailed by spring frosts, and t h u s t h a t the lowest t e m p e r a t u r e occurring around leaf unfolding may be a sensitive indication for the geographical distribution of species. Furthermore it is found that trees possess a considerable plasticity, which enables them to accommodate by phenological adaptation a significant change in climate. With respect to climate warming, in general the probability of frost damage is predicted to be reduced in Dutch, German and UK conditions, for the scenarios and models used (temperature rise uniform throughout the season or temperature rise season dependent).
