A book intended for plant physiologists, ecologists, and atmospheric chemists and modelers. Many trace gases are exchanged between the atmosphere and the biosphere. Although much research has been published on the photosynthetic exchanges of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and water vapour, this book focuses on the imports of biogenic trace gases on atmosphere chemistry and ecosystem stability. Included are methane and its affect on the radiative properties of the atmosphere, hydrocarbons (isoprene and monoterpenes) that lead to the production of ozone and carbon monoxide, sulfur, and nitrogen involvement in ecosystem acidification. The biochemistry and physiology of production of these and other gases are investigated.
