This is the third and final product of SCOPE's International Sulphur project. The volume addresses areas not fully covered in the earlier volumes such as sulphur cycling in wetlands and terrestrial ecosystems and lakes. It also includes a summary chapter on the cycling of sulphur through the atmosphere with both natural and industrial sources of sulphur. Additionally, there are summaries of the latest information on biogenic fluxes of sulphur from tropical ecosystems to the atmosphere. Theoretical approaches for viewing the interactions of sulphur with other element cycles in a variety of ecosystems and reviews of sulphur cycling in particular types of ecosystems, such as wetlands, lakes, coastal seas, forests, agricultural systems and rice fields, are all presented in the book.
