On this Book

This book is unique covering both ecologic and socio-economic aspects of carbon management in Mediterranean ecosystems. The chapters were originally presented at the 1st Istanbul Carbon Summit that was held at Istanbul Technical University, 2-4 April 2014 and subsequently revised after a peer review process. The summit focused on carbon management, carbon technologies, and carbon trends. This book includes chapters on economic aspects of carbon management and on ecological aspects of the carbon cycle. The chapters on economic aspects analyze carbon trade and its institutional, political, and legislative structures in different Mediterranean nations, while those on ecological aspects review the discussion and analysis of the related ecological factors and their feedbacks due to governance processes.

This book:

  1. discusses carbon trade in Mediterranean countries;
  2. examines social ecology of carbon management in ecosystems taking different socio-economic and socio-ecologic structures in the Mediterranean region into account;
  3. offers original research results on carbon sequestration.
