BIO 550 - Biogeochemistry of Terrestrial Ecosystems


Biogeochemical patterns and processes in forest ecosystems. Comparative data from the ecological literature are used to examine the important processes of element cycling, including atmospheric deposition, canopy processes, plant nutrient circulation, decomposition, animal-insect interactions, soil chemical phenomena, weathering, leaching, gaseous fluxes, forest hydrology and overall watershed biogeochemical responses to disturbance. Lec 3.
