Special Section: The Flakaliden experiments: Climate, nutritional and CO2 effects on boreal forests
This Special Section explores what has been unearthed over three decades of research at the Flakaliden research site.

Special Issue: Canopy Processes in a Changing Climate
Forest canopies exchange a large part of the mass and energy between the earth and the atmosphere. The processes that regulate these exchanges have been of interest to scientists from a diverse range of disciplines for a long time.

Special Issue: Carbon Allocation of Trees and Forests
Carbon (C) allocation is a major issue in plant ecology, controlling the flows of C fixed in photosynthesis between respiration and biomass production, and between short- and long-lived and above ground and below ground tissues.

Special Issue: Adaptations of forest ecosystems to air pollution and climate change (March 2011)
We live in a unique time when the impacts of elevated greenhouse gases have moved from the field of meteorology to the ecological and environmental arenas. The IUFRO papers reviewed here point to some important directions of future environmental pollution and global climate change research.
