  • Plant-Induced Soil Changes: Processes and Feedbacks

    This book by soil scientists and ecologists reviews how and why plants influence soils. Topics include effects on mineral weathering, soil structure, and soil organic matter and nutrient dynamics, case studies of soil-plant interactions in specific biomes and of secondary chemicals influencing nutrient cycling, the rhizosphere, and potential ...

  • Managing Organic Matter in Tropical Soils: Scope and Limitations

    Soil organic matter is a reservoir for plant nutrients, provides water-holding capacity, stabilizes soil structure against compaction and erosion, and thus determines soil productivity. All agriculture to some degree depends on soil organic matter. It has long been known that soil organic matter declines when land is taken into cultivation, and ...

  • Arbuscular Mycorrhizas: Physiology and Function

    This book provides a structured compilation of reviews of what is known about arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis. Topics were selected to cover major steps in the life cycle of AM fungi (germination, signaling/recognition prior to colonization, and host regulation of colonization). Aspects of the physiological interaction within the root for ...

  • The Ecology of the Fish Pond Ecosystem

    An understanding of the ecology of a fish pond is essential for the achievement of steady and high fish production in ponds. For the ecologist, the fish pond is a small laboratory: easy to investigate and responding rapidly to manipulation. For the aquaculturist, the ecology shows the ways and means of interventions ensuring an increase of ...

  • Peatland Forestry

    The book provides a review and synthesis of boreal mire ecosystems including peat soil properties, mire hydrology, carbon and nutrient cycling, and classification of mire sites. The emphasis, however, is on peatland forests as a renewable natural resource. The approach originated in northern Europe, because there, especially in Finland, ...

  • Sulphur in Plants

    This book contains an account of the present status of knowledge and a detailed analysis of all aspects of sulphur, viz., the global S cycle; the present and future scenario of fertilizer demand and supply; management strategies of soil sulphur; uptake, assimilation and redistribution of sulphur in plants; biosynthesis and functions of various ...

  • Responses of Northern U.S. Forests to Environmental Change

    The physical and chemical environmental changes associated with global change have increasingly affected the health and productivity of forest ecosystems. Among the important environmental changes manifested by intensive land use and natural disturbances in the Northeastern and North Central United States are escalating levels of atmospheric ...
