Media reviews

Schlesinger presents a clear analysis of the interactions among biological and chemical processes that determine the composition of the atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere, and places these in the context of global change. --Pamela Matson in ECOLOGY "Schlesinger presents the material in a vivid style making the book both informative and a pleasure to read." --Peter Warneck in JOURNAL OF ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY "An excellent resource for earth scientists interested in increasing their knowledge of the roles of the terrestrial biosphere and of soil organic matter in geochemical cycling, particularly as they affect the global cycles of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus." --E.K. and R.A. Berner in GEOCHIMICA ET COSMOCHIMICA ACTA "Do not take a spin on a biogeochemical cycle without first reading Schlesinger's description of the components of that cycle." --J.C.G. Walker in SCIENCE "Careful attention to detail is evident throughout the text. The book is richly illustrated with clearly explained figures, most of which are redrawn from the original primary literature. I recommend this book for any scientitst who needs a comprehensive and thoroughly referenced overview of biogeochemistry, and it is certainly well suited as a textbook for upper-level and graduate courses that deal with biogeochemistry." --Stephen K. Hamilton, Michigan State University, BULLETIN OF THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGY SOCIETY
