This issue is a collection of 29 papers on various studies of land ecosystem atmosphere processes. The collection is based on first international integrated Land Ecosystem Atmosphere Processes Study (iLEAPS) Science Conference held in Boulder, Colorado, USA in January 2006. iLEAPS is the 10-yr land-atmosphere core project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP). The scientific goal of iLEAPS is to provide understanding how interacting physical, chemical and biological processes transport and transform energy and matter through the land-atmosphere interface. The project studies interactions and feedbacks from the cell level to global scale. Times scales range from diurnal to centennial, past to future. iLEAPS encourages international and inter-, multi- and cross-disciplinary collaboration, particularly involving scientists from the developing countries.DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-0889.2007.00283.x
