Abstract: Monitoring carbon, water and energy fluxes between terrestrial ecosystems and atmosphere is essential to better understand the biological and ecological processes, also in relation with climate variability and climate change, and to calculate the carbon balance of the different ecosystems and their ability to sequester CO2. The book addresses in a comprehensive way the full greenhouse gases budget of the Italian landscape, focusing on land use and terrestrial ecosystems. In recent years there has been a growing interest in the role of terrestrial ecosystems with regard to the carbon cycle and only recently a regional approach has been considered for its specificity in terms of new methodologies for observations and models and its relevance for national policies on mitigation and adaptation to climate changes. The chapter describes the Italian network of 26 fluxtower sites sampled during 2007-2010 in the frame of the Carboitaly project and provides an integrated analysis of carbon, water and energy fluxes with regard to climate interactions of the various plant functional types investigated.
