ABSTRACT
The article explains why global warming is critically dependent on the delicate balance between uptake as well as loss of carbon in terrestrial ecosystems. It gives emphasis on the role of terrestrial ecosystems in regulating the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. It is noted that the scientific community has now recognised that the gradual increase in global temperature has been attributed to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
