About this book

As atmospheric CO2 increases, there will almost certainly be alterations in soil carbon fluxes, accompanied by changes in the partitioning of carbon between organic structures and to soil processes, which have the potential for further altering the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems.

'Such a highly valuable reading deserves wide circulation.' Biologia Plantarum, 38:1 (1996) 'It can be recommended to all those working in plant, soil and environmental sciences, especially to those who are interested in global climate and environment changing.' Journal of Plant Physiology, 149 (1996)
