9780126251562: Biogeochemistry: An Analysis of Global Change

Biogeochemistry is the study of the geochemical reactions that occur in the atmosphere, oceans, and crustal minerals of the Earth's surface as affected by living organisms. This text examines global changes that have occurred and are occurring in water, air, and on land, and relates them to the global cycles of water, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous and sulphur. The text is intended for students and professionals in the environmental, geochemical and ecological disciplines.

About the Author:

Dr. Schlesinger is one of the nation’s leading ecologists and earth scientists and a passionate advocate for translating science for lay audiences. A member of the National Academy of Sciences, he has served as dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke and president of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. He lives in Down East Maine and Durham, N.C. and continues to analyze the impacts of humans on the chemistry of our natural environment.


"Schlesinger presents a clear analysis of the interactions among biological and chemical processes that determine the composition of the atmosphere, oceans, and biosphere, and places these in the context of global change."
--Pamela Matson in ECOLOGY
"Schlesinger presents the material in a vivid style making the book both informative and a pleasure to read."
"An excellent resource for earth scientists interested in increasing their knowledge of the roles of the terrestrial biosphere and of soil organic matter in geochemical cycling, particularly as they affect the global cycles of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus."
"Do not take a spin on a biogeochemical cycle without first reading Schlesinger's description of the components of that cycle."
--J.C.G. Walker in SCIENCE
"Careful attention to detail is evident throughout the text. The book is richly illustrated with clearly explained figures, most of which are redrawn from the original primary literature. I recommend this book for any scientitst who needs a comprehensive and thoroughly referenced overview of biogeochemistry, and it is certainly well suited as a textbook for upper-level and graduate courses that deal with biogeochemistry."
--Stephen K. Hamilton, Michigan State University, BULLETIN OF THE AMERICAN METEOROLOGY SOCIETY
