1. Overview and Synthesis.- 2. Evaluation of Dry Deposition, Pollutant Damage, and Forest Health with Throughfall Studies.- 3. Effects of Acidic Deposition on the Chemical Form and Bioavailability of Soil Aluminum and Manganese.- 4. Rates of Nutrient Release by Mineral Weathering.- 5. Effects of Acidic Deposition on Soil Organisms.- 6. The Atmosphere and the Rhizosphere: Linkages with Potential Significance for Forest Tree Health.
A unique contribution to the literature on acidic deposition, this volume offers a collection of in-depth analysis of the key mechanisms governing forest response to acidic inputs. Among the mechanisms reviewed here are foliage leaching, aluminum mobilization, mineral weathering, soil organisms, and rhizosphere processes. Researchers and students in soil science, forest ecology, and environmental science, as well as policy makers and forest managers concerned with assessment of acidic deposition effects will value this concise monograph for its detailed examination of selected technical issues and its comprehensive reference sections.
