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.

From the reviews:
"The 740-page hardcover book has 75 contributors from 14 countries and is designed to serve as a comprehensive one-stop reference tool for researchers and practitioners internationally. ... the book has 36 chapters that cover everything from novel sampling techniques, to hydrological analyses by ecoregion and forest type, to the impacts of insects, ice storms, global change and more. In identifying research needs, the book also charts the future research agenda for the field." (Tracey Bryant, University of Delaware Udaily, July, 2011)
"This edited volume is an ambitious compilation of research on forest hydrology and biogeochemistry. ... This book does an especially good job of addressing some major biogeochemical issues and physical aspects of hydrology and biogeochemistry that will be influenced by climate change. ... This book will be a valuable resource for investigators in the field of hydrology and biogeochemistry of forested ecosystems. ... serve as useful sources of information and topics for discussion in graduate-level courses that address hydrological and/or biogeochemical topics." (Myron J. Mitchell, Progress in Physical Geography, Vol. 36 (3), May, 2012)
