Overview

Based on the classic ecosystem studies at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire, this book presents an in-depth analysis of the biogeochemistry of a terrestrial ecosystem. It synthesizes more than 30 years of data on precipitation and stream-water chemistry, hydrology, and weathering, and also considers the role of atmospheric gases and water as they flow through the system. The book illustrates ways in which ecosystems are affected by the three major biogeochemical vectors of the Earth: air, water, and animals. In turn, it shows how an ecosystem moderates and changes inputs, and how it is connected to global biogeochemical cycles by its outputs.

Meet the Author

Dr. Likens' research focuses on the ecology and biogeochemistry of forest and aquatic ecosystems, primarily through long-term studies at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He was the co-founder of the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study in 1963, which has shed light on critical links between ecosystem function and land-use practices. He and his colleagues were the first scientists to discover acid rain in North America and to document the link between the combustion of fossil fuels and an increase in the acidity of precipitation. His findings have influenced politicians and policy makers, guided and motivated scientific studies, and increased public awareness of human-accelerated environmental change.
