Woods Hole Research Center

This website describes the role that science plays in public and international affairs as human activities create increasingly complex global environmental problems. The Wood's Hole Research Center focuses on the importance of bringing science to bear on policy formulation and on the adoption of international agreements governing these topics. Topics include global climate change (including a PDF of the book "Action Versus Words"), world forest resources, global nitrogen, environmental governance, sustainable development, the global carbon cycle, forest function and land use.
