  Information - BG1.08 Biogeochemistry and ecohydrology of arid and semi-arid ecosystems (co-listed in HS)

Event Information
The interface between biogeochemistry, ecology, and hydrology concerns the
effects of hydrological processes on the distribution, structure, and
function of ecosystems, and on the effects of the biotic processes on the
components of the cycles of water and elements (C,N,P,S). The session addresses
particularly arid and semi-arid environments, where knowledge is still widely
lacking. Scientists should be provided with background and synthesis of new
research approaches and recent results in the study of biogeochemical,
ecological, and hydrological processes. Contributions are welcome on studies in
arid and semi-arid ecosystems concerning (a) soil-vegetation-atmosphere
interactions and (b) biogeochemical and ecohydrological controls on water and
nutrient availability of soils and plants.
