Soil Respiration and the Environment by Yiqi Luo
Book DescriptionThe global environment is constantly changing and our planet is getting warmer at an unprecedented rate. The study of the carbon cycle, and soil respiration, is a very active area of research internationally because of its relationship to climate change. It is crucial for our understanding of ecosystem functions from plot levels to global scales. Although a great deal of literature on soil respiration has been accumulated in the past several years, the material has not yet been synthesized into one place until now. This book synthesizes the already published research findings and presents the fundamentals of this subject. Including information on global carbon cycling, climate changes, ecosystem productivity, crop production, and soil fertility, this book will be of interest to scientists, researchers, and students across many disciplines. It is a key reference for the scientific community on global climate change, ecosystem studies, and soil ecology. It describes the myriad ways that soils respire and how this activity influences the environment. It covers a breadth of topics ranging from methodology to comparative analyses of different ecosystem types. This is the first existing 'treatise' on the subject.

Birds and Climate Change, Paperback (September 2006)
Temperature and other climate variables are changing at a dramatic rate. Birds are highly sensitive to environmental changes. This book discusses the knowledge of observed changes and provides guidelines for studies so we can document and understand how patterns of changing weather conditions may affect birds.
Litter Decomposition, Paperback (August 2006)
Describes one of the most important processes in the biosphere the decay of organic matter. This work focuses on the decomposition process of foliar litter in the terrestrial systems of boreal and temperate forests due to the greater amount of data from those biomes. It is aimed at researchers specializing in this field.
Population Dynamics and Laboratory Ecology, Hardback (September 2005)
Highlights the contributions laboratory studies are making to our understanding of the dynamics of ecological and evolutionary systems. This book presents results from a range of laboratory systems including insects, mites, plankton, protists, and microbes. It addresses fundamental questions that are of interest to biologists.
Food Webs, Hardback (May 2005)» View all books by Yiqi Luo
A food web describes the network of predator-prey interactions within a community. Part of the "Advances in Ecological Research" series, this book demonstrates a knowledge of advances in the analysis of food webs.
