About the Authors
  • Biogeoscience is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that aims to bring together biological and geophysical processes. This book builds an enhanced understanding of ecosystems by focusing on the integrative connections between ecological processes and the geosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere. Each chapter provides studies by researchers who have contributed to the biogeoscience synthesis, presenting the latest research on the relationships between ecological processes, such as conservation laws and heat and transport processes, and geophysical processes, such as hillslope, fluvial and aeolian geomorphology, and hydrology. Highlighting the value of biogeoscience as an approach to understand ecosystems, this is an ideal resource for researchers and students in both ecology and the physical sciences.

    • Highlights the value of biogeoscience as a synthesizing approach to improve our understanding of ecosystems
    • Helps ecologists to gain greater awareness of valuable developments and approaches in the geosciences
    • Each chapter presents research by key contributors to the biogeoscience synthesis, and incorporates geophysical concepts in an easily accessible manner for readers without an in-depth knowledge of the geosciences
