Overview

This volume draws on the Hubbard Brook Experiment to present an integrated picture of the structure, function, and development over time of the northern hardwood ecosystem in northern New England.
Topics covered include important ecological problems such as the limits to primary production and biomass accumulation, biotic regulation of energy flow and biogeochemistry, the relationship between species diversity and stability, variations in biogeochemical behavior over time, and the effect of the weathering-erosion interaction on productivity.
