ENVS 89 Soils, Forests and Food

This seminar will examine elemental cycling and related biogeochemical processes in terrestrial ecosystems, most notably forests, agricultural and post-agricultural lands in temperate North America. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the role of soils and ecosystems in cycling of the major elements carbon and nitrogen, and the trace elements mercury and lead. The interaction of disturbed and undisturbed land and the global carbon cycle will be a major topic of study throughout the course.
