THE FOREST SOILS PLACE
The primary purpose of this site is to provide some insight on the activities in the Forest Soils program at the University of Maine. The Forest Soils program involves scientists, technicians, graduate students, and undergraduate students involved in a variety of research projects.
The major focus of the Forest Soils program is the study of biogeochemical cycling in forested ecosystems, focusing on soil processes. The program has been directed towards addressing information needs regarding atmospheric deposition, climate change, ash/sludge land application and management, forest harvesting effects on nutrient cycling and forest sustainability, and metals in the environment. Below are a few examples of existing program efforts, and links to evolving sites on these activities.
