Description - Sustaining Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in Soils and Sediments by Diana H. Wall

Sustaining Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in Soils and Sediments brings together the world's leading ecologists, systematists, and evolutionary biologists to present scien-tific information that integrates soil and sediment disciplines across terrestrial, marine, and freshwater ecosystems. It offers a framework for a new discipline, one that will allow future scientists to consider the linkages of biodiversity below-surface, and how biota interact to provide the essential ecosystemservices needed for sustainable soils and sediments. Contributors consider key questions regarding soils and sediments and the relationship between soil, and sediment-dwelling organisms and overall ecosystem functioning. The book is an important new synthesis for scientists and researchers studying a range of topies, including global sustainability, conservation biology, taxonomy, erosion, extreme systems, food production, and related fields. In addition, it provides new insight and understanding for managers, policymakers, and others concerned with global environmental sustainability and global change issues.
