Abstract

This editorial provides a subject index from published articles, active researchers, and published papers in the field of carbon balance and management.

Background

Developing a policy relevant understanding of the global carbon cycle requires a high degree of interdisciplinarity. Therefore, research published in Carbon Balance and Management involves cutting across disciplines and consulting with specialists in various fields. This editorial is to support an interdisciplinary effort with relevant bibliographic information [see Additional file 1] including a source of names to consult with and a list of subjects that may appear in the papers. Terms may differ depending on context.

Subject index

This list of words and wordings [see Additional file 2], selected from the articles published in the first volume of the journal, represents the phraseology of carbon cycle science.
