Subject Index Summaries
Climate Models (Inadequacies - Clouds): How well do the climate models that have formed the basis for the last decade of climate alarmism simulate important cloud properties and their climatic impacts?

Glomalin: The production of a recently recognized exudate of symbiotic fungi associated with the roots of 80% of all vascular plants is significantly enhanced by atmospheric CO2 enrichment, resulting in a host of biological benefits.

Journal Reviews
Urban Heat Islands of Coastal Tropical Cities: They appear to have grown rapidly with expanding populations over the past three decades.
