About this book

A synthesis of 50 years of research on hydrology and biogeochemistry of peatland watersheds at the Marcell Experimental Forest, this book covers the history of the project, what has been learned, and where the research should go in the future. The book examines the establishment of the MEF, the history behind the research, the value of long-term monitoring, the paleo-history of the MEF landscape, effects of forest management on water and chemical fluxes, the physical and chemical properties of upland and peatland soils, and the cycling of mercury. Figures, photographs, and tables depict concepts and findings within the book.
