Early in the writing of the Working Group II contribution to the Fourth Assessment, there emerged themes of environmental importance and widespread interest which are dealt with from different perspectives by several chapters. These themes have been gathered together into 'cross-chapter case studies', which appear in their entirety at the end of the volume and are included in the CD-ROM which accompanies this volume. A 'roadmap' in Table I.3 shows where the cross-chapter case study material appears in the individual chapters.
The four cross-chapter case studies are:
1. The impact of the European 2003 heatwave
2. Impacts of climate change on coral reefs
3. Megadeltas: their vulnerabilities to climate change
4. Indigenous knowledge for adaptation to climate change
