About this book

This is a `how to' book for ecologists and environmental scientists; introducing both the concepts and techniques involved in the detection and measurement of gases and the impact this has on ecological studies.

The present volume of [this book] will serve as an important tool box for researchers and graduate students in this discipline, and will provide both a range of techniques for field measurements and a conceptual framework for extrapolation strategies.
