Summary This international rigorously peer-reviewed volume critically synthesizes current knowledge in forest hydrology and biogeochemistry. It is a one-stop comprehensive reference tool for researchers and practitioners in the fields of hydrology, biogeoscience, ecology, forestry, boundary-layer meteorology, and geography. Following an introductory chapter tracing the historical roots of the subject, the book is divided into the following main sections: ·¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Sampling and Novel Approaches ·¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Forest Hydrology and Biogeochemistry by Ecoregion and Forest Type ·¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Fluxes from the Canopy to the Phreatic Surface ·¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Fluxes in Forest Ecosystems: Effects of Time, Stressors, and Humans The volume concludes with a final chapter that reflects on the current state of knowledge and identifies some areas in need of further research
