Figure The nitrogen cycle
Global scheme of nitrogen cycle, showing major nitrogen reservoirs (atmosphere, soil and living organisms), major processes (nitrification, denitrification, nitrogen fixation, assimilation etc.) and actors (plants, animals, bacteria, human beings).

Figure Projected impacts of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems
The maps show projected impacts of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems: forest cover gain, shrub/woodland cover gain, herbaceous cover gain, desert amelioration, grass/tree cover loss, forest/woodland decline, forest type change, according to 2 climate scenarios (SRES B1 and SRES A2).

Figure Projected ocean acidification by 2100
The maps show projected ocean acidification and related impacts on corals by 2020, 2060 and 2100: from better (blue) to worse (orange) conditions for coral skeletal growth.

Figure Selected raw materials: world use and rare earth elements, germanium and tantalum
For the graph: 2006 and projected 2030 world use of neodymium, germanium and tantalum. The technologies responsible for the growth in use of these materials by 2030 are indicated in red. For the map: The bars show estimated reserves of rare earth elements, germanium and tantalum.

Figure Various human health risks in relation to development and economic growth and Causes of death
Top graph: From traditional to modern health risks, this “health transition” scheme describes the relation between development and health, distinguishing behavioural risks and the correlated diseases and death causes. Some risks are specifically related to developing countries (blue part of the scheme), others are typically worrying in developed countries (brown part) and some occur everywhere (blue and brown intersection). Bottom graph: Comparison between 2008 and 2030 projected causes of death for 2 income groups.showing the growing projected imoortance of cardiovascular diseases and cancers.

Figure Projected impacts of climate change on freshwater flows
The map shows mean variation in annual run-off in 1981-2000 and 2081-2100

Figure Projected impact of climate change on agricultural yields
The map shows projected national productivity increase / decrease by 2080 (compared to 2003 levels)

Figure The Earth’s biomes and loss of species diversity
The map: Locating biomes (or regional ecosystems) throughout the world. The graph: The bars compare the impacted states of selected biomes (or regional ecosystems) at various historical dates and projected 2050. These impacts are expressed using the Mean species abundance (MSA) indicator.

Figure Conversion of regional ecosystems (biomes)
The bars show, for each biome, the fraction of potential area lost by 1950 (pale blue), lost between 1950 and 1990 (blue) and the projected loss by 2050 (dark blue).
