Ecosystem Consequences of Soil Warming: Microbes, Vegetation, Fauna and Soil Biogeochemistry focuses on biotic responses to warmer soils, including plant and microbial evolution. It covers various field settings, such as temperate forests, tropical forest, subalpine forests, arctic tundra, grasslands and alpine meadows. The included information integrates multiple natural science disciplines, providing a holistic, integrative approach that will help readers understand and forecast future planetary responses to soil warming. Soil scientists, ecologists and geneticists, and molecular, evolutionary and conservation biologists interested in understanding and planning for the future for organisms' and ecosystems' responses to warmer soil conditions will find this book a valuable resource.

  • Includes a strong emphasis on biological components of soil that provides linkages to physics and chemistry
  • Brings together chapters written by global experts with interests in science communication and education
  • Presents a holistic view of the soil food web using community sequencing

Mohan, Jacqueline E.
Dr. Jacqueline Mohan is an Associate Professor of Terrestrial Ecosystem Ecology and Biogeochemistry at the Odum School of Ecology, University of Georgia. Her lab investigates the role of global change on plants, soil biogeochemistry, soil microbes, insect herbivores and, in particular, terrestrial ecosystems. Research includes eastern temperate forests, tropical montane forests, arctic shrub tundra, and southeastern U.S. fire-dependent pine savannas. She earned a S.B. in Biological Chemistry and an A.B. in Biology from the University of Chicago, a M.E.M from Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment, and a PhD in Biological Sciences from Duke University with James S. Clark and William H. Schlesinger. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University with Fahkri Bazzaz and with Jerry Melillo of The Ecosystems Center, Marine Biological Laboratory. She was awarded the Murray F. Buell Award from the Ecological Society of America and serves on the Board of Editors of the journal PLoS One. She has published in journals including Science, Nature, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Global Change Biology, Ecology, Ecology Letters, Ecological Applications, Biogeochemistry, New Phytologist, Soil Science Society of America, Fungal Ecology, and Ecological Monographs.
