FMK is grateful to the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry for funding his attendance at the meeting that led to this chapter. His support for preparation of the essay came from a long-term grant for atmospheric research from the New Zealand Foundation for Research, Science and Technology. Michael Raupach and Frank Dunin generously, persistently, and patiently gave FMK many valuable lessons about the equilibrium evaporation rate. In New Zealand, writing a paper about the boreal zone could not have been done without the excellent interloan support of librarians Izabella Kruger and Chris Powell. Brian Amiro, Andy Black, Achim Grelle, Andy Suyker, and Sashi Verma kindly contributed by correspondence to the preparation of Table 3. John Hunt and David Whitehead did helpful critiques of a draft manuscript. Finally, we are indebted to Nina Wagner for her expert translation of the Vysotskaya and Vaganov paper from Russian to English.
