Principles and Standards for Measuring Primary Production

Edited by Timothy J. Fahey and Alan K. Knapp

Long-Term Ecological Research Network Series

This volume will lay out the best methods for measuring net primary productivity in ecological research. All the LTER sites would be expected to collect and report data using these methods, but ecologists more generally should also find these methods useful and authoritative. This book resembles the Standard Soil Measurement volume in the LTER series in that it reaches well beyond any single LTER site to apply to any ecosystem. It should be rather more widely used than the soil measurements volume, in that measuring productivity is so fundamental to any ecological analyses as well as agronomy, forestry, fisheries, limnology and oceanography.
