To a certain extent this textbook is a summary of both scientific results of various authors and classes in biogeochemistry, that have been given to students by authors during the last 5 to 10 years at different universities throughout the world such as Cornell, Moscow, Seoul and Bangkok. Biogeochemistry is becoming an increasingly popular subject for graduate and postgraduate education. Courses in ecology, geography, biology, chemistry, environmental science, public health and environmental engineering all tend to have a biogeochemical component in their syllabuses to a greater or lesser extent.

"A very interesting title for the tutor's and researcher's library Vladimir Bashkin's book, written in cooperation with R.W. Howarth, provides some aspects of biogeochemistry that were absent in recent titles and contains useful material that can be incorporated in a biogeochemistry course. [...] I would highly recommend it as an additional course material source to the biogeochemistry teacher of graduate or undergraduate classes. It contains a lot of useful material which will not be found easily in another contemporary title. I would also recommend it to scholars doing research in biogeochemistry or related fields, as it contains some interesting approaches to the subject by Russian and other former USSR scientists, with which the west is largely unfamiliar with.'

' This is a very well illustrated text, incorporating questions for the student to work upon at the end of each chapter. It is very readable and extremely informative'

' The aim of putting together a textbook has certainly been achieved. There is plenty of interesting material. It is particularly positive to read examples from Russia and other parts of the former Soviet Union, which were at least partly inaccessible to most of the international readership until about 15 years ago. This textbook certainly depicts the current methods that link experience from specific fields and reveals a more holistic view of reality."
