FIRST EDITION. Illustrated, pp x, 324, an excellent copy in dustwrapper. Still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap. [The author takes a broad look at the relatively unexplored world of the garden, and its relevance within the context of natural history overall.

By viewing gardens within the wider context of the British ecological landscape, Buczacki follows the garden's development as a habitat withi... View more info

[Biological management of nutrient supply to plants is intrinsically more complex that the provision of nutrients as inorganic fertilizers. A predictive understanding of these biological factors is therefore needed. We need to know whether the nutrients released are retained or lost from the system, whether rates of decomposition can be manipulated to improve nutrient use efficiency, and how the various fractions of plant residues translate into pools of organic matter in soil. Only then... View more info

In this 1993 book, a multidisciplinary research team tests this idea by manipulating whole lakes experimentally, and coordinating this with palaeolimnological studies, simulation model...
