Wheeler. A textbook for advanced students of forest science, ecology, and environmental studies as well as a reference for professionals in these fields, Forest Ecosystems offers a comprehensive survey of the structure and functioning of forest ecosystems worldwide: temperate, tropical, and boreal.

Basic ecological concepts are stressed throughout, at scales ranging from the global to the microscopic 4/5(1). N-cycling in many forest ecosystems can be characterized by a relatively closed nature where the rates of input from precipitation and biological N 2 fixation balances outputs by denitrification, volatilization, and leaching losses.

Forest exposed to enhanced N depositions, as is typical in urban areas or regions with intensive animal farming. Biological nitrogen fixation is an important part of many agroforestry, sustainable agriculture, and land rehabilitation practices. Although the terms "nitrogen fixing plants" and "nitrogen fixing trees (NFTs)" are widely used, the plants themselves do not have the ability to make use of the nitrogen gas in the air-- it is only through the.

Nitrogen is regarded as the limiting nutrient in most terrestrial ecosystems (Vitousek and Howarth ).However, since the industrial revolution, and more recently through the Haber-Bosh process in the 20th century, the amount of anthropogenically fixed N r in the biosphere has increased by 50 percent (Galloway, et al.
