Aboveground-Belowground Linkages presents the main updated and accomplished synthesis of modern advances in our realizing of the jobs that interactions among aboveground and belowground groups play in regulating the constitution and serve as of terrestrial ecosystems, and their responses to international switch. It charts the ancient improvement of this box of ecology and evaluates what could be realized from the hot proliferation of experiences at the ecological and biogeochemical importance of aboveground-belowground linkages.

The ebook is based round 4 key subject matters: biotic interactions within the soil; plant neighborhood results; the position of aboveground shoppers; and the effect of species profits and losses. A concluding bankruptcy attracts jointly this knowledge and identifies a couple of cross-cutting issues, together with attention of aboveground-belowground feedbacks that ensue at diverse spatial and temporal scales, the implications of those feedbacks for atmosphere techniques, and the way aboveground-belowground interactions hyperlink to human-induced worldwide change.
