Editorial
Crop Breeding for High Production, Water Use Efficiency & Albedo: It's a good way to confront mankind's growing need for food and the water needed to produce it, while simultaneously hedging our bets on what many believe to be CO2-induced global warming.

Subject Index Summary
Biospheric Productivity (Global: The Recent Past): Since 1980 the Earth has weathered three of the warmest decades in the instrumental temperature record, a handful of intense and persistent El Niño events, large-scale deforestation, "unprecedented" forest fires, and the eruption of several volcanoes. Concurrently, the air's CO2 content increased by 16%, while human population grew by 55%. It was a bad time for the biosphere. Or was it?
