About this book

This volume provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive synthesis of recent advances in the understanding of the roles that interactions between aboveground and belowground communities play in regulating the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems, and their responses to global change. It charts the historical development of this field of ecology and evaluates what can be learned from the recent proliferation of studies on the ecological and biogeochemical significance of these linkages.

Media reviews

This book is clearly organized which makes it a pleasure to read. Each chapter is nicely introduced and there is discussion about how it fits with the rest of the book. Both of the authors have successfully used conceptual diagrams to illustrate their work in their numerous empirical and review papers, and this book is no exception. Aimee T. Classen, Ecology The topics in this short and affordable book are well integrated and up to date. Given that the authors are pioneering leaders in this field and have had a long and productive collaboration, it is no surprise that their new book is excellent. Aimee T. Classen, Ecology Is Aboveground-Belowground Linkages just another synthesis? Certainly not. An excellent and up-to-date overview of the field of plant and soil community interactions and ecosystem functioning... in my opinion, a book that all plant and soil ecologists should read. It will undoubtedly have a strong influence on the direction of the future research of many scientists in this field. T. Martijn Bezemer, Trends in Ecology and Evolution This is the most interesting book I read in 2010. It should appeal to a wide range of researchers, is an excellent source of reference and a potentially useful teaching resource. John Hopkins, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
