Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds and Climate Change (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Biogenic Volatile Organic Compounds and Climate Change highlights the relationship between climate change and biogenic VOC and the impact they have on each other. Topics include the synthesis and emission of VOC in plants, how they respond to environmental stresses, how sustainable agricultural practices plants can be used to directly impact climate change beyond carbon sequestration, a review of biogenic VOCs as air pollutants, and the impact of biogenic VOC on clouds. This groundbreaking work is essential for anyone in climate change, global warming and cooling, atmospheric chemistry, clouds, fate and transport of chemicals in the atmosphere, air pollution, sustainability or agriculture.

Dr Federico Brilli is a plant eco-physiologist. During his Marie Curie post-doc fellowship, he developed methodologies for in vivo high throughput plant phenotyping such as gas exchange systems and PTR-TOF-MS (Proton Transfer Reaction Time-Of-Flight Mass Spectrometry) technology for real-time analysis of the plant volatome. Since 2012 he is a permanent researcher at CNR where his activities are focused on the sustainable improvement of plant defense by making use of volatile organic compounds (VOC)-mediated signaling, immunization, priming and cross-tolerance. Moreover, his research aims at understanding the role of VOC in plant-plant, plant-microbes and plant-insect interaction. He is author/coauthor of 34 scientific papers in peer-review journals. Dr Stefano Decesari is a senior researcher at the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC) of the National Research Council of Italy. He has been working in the field of physical and chemical processes occurring in multiphase atmospheric systems (aerosols and clouds) for almost 20 years. He has developed original chemical methodologies for source attribution of complex organic atmospheric particulate matter in airborne particles. He is author or coauthor of more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. He took part to more than ten EU research projects dealing with atmospheric particulate matter formation and impact on climate and air quality, and he coordinated three international experimental field campaigns. He is a specialist in atmospheric organic aerosol chemistry with experience on biomass burning aerosols and biogenic organic aerosols formation in hotspot areas: in the Mediterranean, tropical forests, high mountain areas and cold climates.
