Overview

A detailed analysis of acidification effects on forest soil, rhizosphere and plant life and on the processes connecting them such as nutrient uptake and mineral cycling. Presents findings from the Solling project, an important long-term study on acid rain results in Germany's Black Forest, as well as other European forests which have experienced severe acid rain damage as a means of evaluating and predicting similar harm to U.S. forests.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reflecting the more recent developments in investigations of the effects of acidification on forest decline--particularly the Soiling Project, a pioneering European study which ran from 1966 to 1973--this volume discusses element budgets and changes in soil chemistry for both European and North American forest ecosystems. It addresses the effects of acid deposition not only on root and canopy growth of forest trees, but also on the micro-and macroscopic flora and fauna. Pathogenic organisms influenced by the chemical and physical properties of the soil are also addressed. The final chapter tries to simplify the complex interaction of the forest using an integrative theory of forest ecosystems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
