ENVS 89 Forest Biogeochemistry
This seminar will examine elemental cycling and related biogeochemical processes in terrestrial ecosystems, with a strong focus on forests of the temperate zone. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the cycling of the major elements carbon and nitrogen, and the trace elements mercury and lead. The interaction of disturbed and undisturbed forests with the changing global environment will be a major topic of study throughout the course.
