This Science Plan and Implementation Strategy arose from the iLEAPS scoping meeting (Paris, October 2002) and the
iLEAPS Open Science Conference (Helsinki, September-October 2003). Revisions were made by the iLEAPS Transition
Team during 2003, and by the Scientific Steering Committee and International Project Office during 2004-2005.
The iLEAPS Transition Team members were:

The iLEAPS Science Plan and Implementation Strategy defines the scientific objectives and key research issues of the
land-atmosphere project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. It also outlines a strategy for address-
ing the key research questions.
The scope of iLEAPS research spans from molecular level processes- such as synthesis of volatile organic compounds
in vegetation- to Earth System science issues, climate and global change. iLEAPS research emphasises the importance
of connections, feedbacks and teleconnections between the numerous processes in the land-atmosphere interface. Due
to the complexity and wide range of scientific issues, iLEAPS stresses the need for increased integrative approaches and
collaboration, involving scientists from various disciplines, experimentalists and modellers, and international research
projects and programmes.
