Belowground Responses to Rising Atmospheric CO2: Implications for Plants, Soil Biota, and Ecosystem Processes
As atmospheric CO2 increases there will almost certainly be alterations in soil carbon fluxes. It is likely that such alterations will be accompanied by changes in the partitioning of carbon between organic structures and to soil processes. These changes have the potential for further altering the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems. While there has been increasing recognition of the importance of soil-mediated responses to ...
CO2 and Biosphere
An international workshop on 'CO2 and Biosphere' was held in Wageningen, the Netherlands on 15-19 November 1991 as part of the activities of the CO2 Commission of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research: this volume includes 32 papers presented at the workshop. The CO2 Commission stimulates and coordinates a broad range of research projects related to the greenhouse effect. This is reflected in the scope of papers presented, ...
Fossil Record 2
The history of life is illustrated by fossils which give crucial information on the plants and animals of the past. Fossil Record 2 is a compilation of this mass of data. All families of protists, plants and animals and their ranges in geological time are documented, with full details of first and last species for each family.
Global and Regional Mercury Cycles: Sources, Fluxes and Mass Balances
Essential themes in the biochemical cycling of mercury are the relative importance of anthropogenic versus natural sources, transformation and migration processes at the local, regional and global scale, global emission inventories of different mercury sources (both point and diffuse) of both natural and anthropogenic origin. In this regard, Siberia, with its vast territory and variety of natural zones, is of special interest in the global ...
Mercury - Cadmium - Lead Handbook for Sustainable Heavy Metals Policy and Regulation
Although this is a handbook for policy and regulation, the major part of it is filled with data on the three heavy metals that served as examples: mercury, cadmium and lead. Their stocks, productions, prices, trade flows, uses and applications, recovery and recycling, as well as their (eco)toxicological characteristics have been collected and presented to their fullest extent. In addition, they are thoroughly analysed for consistency, ...
Mercury as a Global Pollutant: Human Health Issues
This book comprises papers which were initially presented as part of the Human Health Effects of Methylmercury section at the Fourth International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant held in Hamburg, Germany, August 4-8, 1996. The international concern for the human health effects of methylmercury, especially potential effects on the fetus, continues and is the basis for a number of the papers presented in this book. The papers ...
