The Potential of U.S. Forest Soils to Sequester Carbon and Mitigate the Greenhouse Effect

The editors (three of whom are with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Provides) of this book provide researchers and policy makers with an understanding of soil processes and their relation to carbon dynamics, as well as strategies to monitor and techniques to measure forest soil carbon. The central topics addressed include the extent, general dynamics, and carbon dynamics of U.S. forest soils; soil processes and carbon dynamics; management impacts on U.S. forest soils; specific forest ecosystems; and synthesis and policy implications. Includes chapters on economics, policy issues, and future research priorities.
