The Biology of Soil

Richard D. Bardgett

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how particular global change phenomena impact on soil biota and their activities, and how these effects feedback to nutrient dynamics and the productivity and structure of above-ground communities. Earth's ecosystems are subject to multiple and simultaneous assaults of global change phenomena. The chapter focuses on selected global change phenomena — climate change, nitrogen deposition, invasive species, and land use change — to explore how single components of global change impact on soil and ecosystem processes.

Keywords:   global warming, climate change, invasive species, land use, soil ecosystem, soil community, nitrogen deposition, carbon dioxide
