About this book


This international rigorously peer-reviewed volume critically synthesizes current knowledge in forest hydrology and biogeochemistry. It is a one-stop comprehensive reference tool for researchers and practitioners in the fields of hydrology, biogeoscience, ecology, forestry, boundary-layer meteorology, and geography. Following an introductory chapter tracing the historical roots of the subject, the book is divided into the following main sections:

·        Sampling and Novel Approaches

·        Forest Hydrology and Biogeochemistry by Ecoregion and Forest Type

·        Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Fluxes from the Canopy to the Phreatic Surface

·        Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Fluxes in Forest Ecosystems: Effects of Time, Stressors, and Humans

The volume concludes with a final chapter that reflects on the current state of knowledge and identifies some areas in need of further research.
