From the reviews:

"The 740-page hardcover book has 75 contributors from 14 countries and is designed to serve as a comprehensive one-stop reference tool for researchers and practitioners internationally. ... the book has 36 chapters that cover everything from novel sampling techniques, to hydrological analyses by ecoregion and forest type, to the impacts of insects, ice storms, global change and more. In identifying research needs, the book also charts the future research agenda for the field." (Tracey Bryant, University of Delaware Udaily, July, 2011)

"This edited volume is an ambitious compilation of research on forest hydrology and biogeochemistry. ... This book does an especially good job of addressing some major biogeochemical issues and physical aspects of hydrology and biogeochemistry that will be influenced by climate change. ... This book will be a valuable resource for investigators in the field of hydrology and biogeochemistry of forested ecosystems. ... serve as useful sources of information and topics for discussion in graduate-level courses that address hydrological and/or biogeochemical topics." (Myron J. Mitchell, Progress in Physical Geography, Vol. 36 (3), May, 2012)
