Contents
The soil food web : biotic interactions and regulators. Controls : top down, bottom up, and productivity -- Regulation by resources and predation in soil food webs -- Litter transformers, ecosystem engineers, and mutualisms -- The functionality of soil food webs -- Stability and temporal variability -- Synthesis. Plant species control of soil biota and processes. Plant species effects on soil biota -- Links among plantspecies, soil biota, and soil processes -- Temporal and spatial variability -- Plant traits, strategies, and ecophysiological constraints -- Soil biotic responses to vegetation succession -- Synthesis. Belowground consequences of aboveground food web interactions. Individual plant effects -- Dung and urine return -- Effects of palatability differences among plant species -- Spatial and temporal variability -- Consequences of predation of herbivores -- Transport of resources by aboveground consumers -- Synthesis. Completing the circle : how soil food web effects are manifested aboveground. The decomposer food web -- Nitrogen transformations -- Microbial associates of plant roots -- Root herbivores -- Physical effects of soil biota -- Soil biota effects on aboveground food webs -- Synthesis. The regulation and function of biological diversity. Assessment of soil diversity -- Stress and disturbance as controls of soil diversity -- Biotic controls of diversity -- The enigma of soil diversity -- Diversity of soil organisms over larger spatial scales -- Biodiversity and ecosystem function -- Synthesis. Global change phenomena in an aboveground-belowground context. Species losses and gains -- Land use changes -- Carbon dioxide enrichment and nitrogen deposition -- Global climate change -- Synthesis
