About this book

Carbon and Nitrogen in the Terrestrial Environment is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary description of C and N fluxes between the atmosphere and the terrestrial biosphere; issues related to C and N management in different ecosystems and their implications for the environment and global climate change; and the approaches to mitigate emission of greenhouse gases.

Drawing upon the most up-to-date books, journals, bulletins, reports, symposia proceedings and internet sources documenting interrelationships between different aspects of C and N cycling in the terrestrial environment, Carbon and Nitrogen in the Terrestrial Environment fills the gap left by most of the currently available books on C and N cycling. They either deal with a single element of an ecosystem, or are related to one or a few selected aspects like soil organic matter (SOM) and agricultural or forest management, emission of greenhouse gases, global climate change or modeling of SOM dynamics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Nieder and Benbi are just in time with their recent book on carbon and nitrogen in the terrestrial environment. … The book is a comprehensive compilation of information highly useful not only for soil scientists who are searching for reference values, models, and concepts, and hundreds of useful references in the respective field, but also for scientists and graduate students of adjacent sciences searching for a sound reference from a soil-scientific perspective." (Martin H. Gerzabek, Journal of Plant Nutrition and Soil Science, Vol. 171 (6), 2008)
