Aboveground-Belowground Linkages provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive synthesis of recent advances in our understanding of the roles that interactions between aboveground and belowground communities play in regulating the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems, and their responses to global change. It charts the historical development of this field of ecology and evaluates what can be learned from the recent proliferation of studies on the ecological and biogeochemical significance of aboveground-belowground linkages. The book is structured around four key topics: biotic interactions in the soil; plant community effects; the role of aboveground consumers; and the influence of species gains and losses. A concluding chapter draws together this information and identifies a number of cross-cutting themes, including consideration of aboveground-belowground feedbacks that occur at different spatial and temporal scales, the consequences of these feedbacks for ecosystem processes, and how aboveground-belowground interactions link to human-induced global change.

Chapter 5 should be required reading for anyone who trying to link biodiversity to global climate change. The rest of the book undergirds that chapter. An all too rare case of thinkers willing to confront daunting complexity honestly and productively without drifting off into handwaving and guessing. My relationship to my compost pile will never be the same.

I'm teaching an upper division soil ecology course this coming fall, and we are going to read selected chapters from this book. It's going to be a bit advanced for this group, but it will be so worth it. Richard Bardgett is a god in this field and the book reflects his years of accumulated wisdom and insight. Beautifully written, great figures -- every time I pick it up I get reinspired!! Highly, highly recommend this book for a range of types -- master gardeners, grad students in ecology, scientists looking for a good introduction to soil processes and how they manifest in plant communities, as well as experts in plant-soil feedbacks!
