Gaseous nitrogen emissions from grasslands

Front Cover
Cab International, 1997 - Nature - 452 pages
Atmospheric nitrogen has an impact on acid rain, ozone levels and the climate; grasslands, which emit gaseous nitrogen, play a critical role. This book examines the complex relationship between grassland production and nitrogen levels. It covers each stage of grassland growth, pointing out specific links to the nitrogen cycle. It examines ways to control nitrogen emissions and provides an up-to-date account of current research. Topics include emission processes, ammonia fluxes, nitrous oxide emissions, the impact of organic manures, and systems modeling. The approach will interest grasslands scientists, farm advisors, and ecologists and conservationists concerned with grasslands management.
