The Impact of Anthropogenic CO2 Emissions on Calcifying Marine Organisms: Will a continuation of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content lead to the demise of earth's corals and calcifying plankton?

Subject Index Summaries
Health Effects (Temperature - Hot vs. Cold: North America): What effect does outdoor temperature have on mortality in North America?

Phenolics (Woody Species): How do phenolic concentrations of woody plants respond to increases in the air's CO2 content, and what do the responses portend about the future?

Journal Reviews
A Multi-Proxy Holocene Climate Study of Temperate Eastern Australia: What can this study tell us about natural climate variability over the past 10,000 years in this part of the world?

3600 Years of Scandinavian Summer Temperature Variability: This multi-millennial tree-ring record yields important information about the uniqueness of late 20th-century climate.

Coral Calcification vs. pH and Aragonite Saturation State: Living corals appear to be immune to the physical-chemical constraints climate alarmists keep trying to impose upon them.

Acquiring Extra Plant Nitrogen in a CO2-Enriched World: Where will plants get the extra nitrogen they need to support the extra growth that is typically observed in CO2-enriched air?

Effects of CO2 and Drought on Isoprene Emissions from Agriforest Cottonwood Plantations: What are they?  Why are they important?  And do they amplify or nullify each other?
