Abstract

Soil carbon, perhaps as no other factor, influences soil. It affects plant relationships through its direct and indirect impacts on mineral solubility, exchange capacity, nutrient availability, moisture supply, aggregate formation, and soil erosion. This book focuses on a single factor that in many ways describes, defines, and delineates the study of forest soils as a unique niche in the broader continuum of soil science.
