Biogeochemistry of a Forested Ecosystem

Biogeochemistry of a Forested Ecosystem Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the classic ecosystem studies at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the biogeochemistry of a terrestrial ecosystem. It synthesizes long-term data on precipitation and streamwater chemistry, hydrology and weathering, and also considers the dynamics of atmospheric gases and water as they flow through the system. Hailed as "ƄaƜ standard for ecological teaching and research for years to come", the book "bristles with unsettled questions, intriguing problems, and technical challenges". This new edition brings the 1977 volume up to date and presents the ongoing Hubbard Brook study to a new generation of ecologists. The authors have international reputations: they won the $150,000 Tyler Prize in Environmental Science in 1993, and Likens also won the $250,000 Australia Prize in 1994.
