This book consists of papers presented at a symposium "PLANT-INDUCED SOIL CHANGES: PROCESSES AND FEEDBACKS" that was held during the American Society of Agronomy-Soil Science Society of America Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, November 4-8, 1996. The papers were also pub­ of Biogeochemistry (Vol. 42, nos. 1 and 2, 1998). The lished in a special issue symposium was built on the growing realisation that plant-induced changes in soil feed back in various ways to natural vegetations, giving rise to a plethora of plant-soil interactions beyond the classical one-way cause-and-effect pathways plant-to-soil and soil-to-plant. The aim of this special issue is not in the first place to present new research findings, but to review and discuss the more holistic aspects of plant-soil interactions, providing more room for speculation than do most collections of research papers. After a general introduction which emphasises ecological and evolutionary aspects of plant-soil interac<_ions20_28_van20_breemen20_and20_finzi29_2c_20_three20_papers20_deal20_with20_particular20_effects20_of20_plants20_on20_soil20_properties3a_20_mineralogy20_28_kelly20_et20_al.20_29_2c_20_soil20_structure20_28_angers20_and20_caron29_20_and20_soil20_fertility20_28_berendse29_.20_next2c_20_five20_papers20_take20_up20_plant-soil20_interactions20_in20_specific20_biomes3a_20_forests20_28_binkley20_and20_giardina3b_20_gobran20_et20_al.20_29_2c_20_grasslands20_28_burke20_et20_al.3b_20_epstein20_et20_al.20_29_20_and20_deserts20_28_schlesinger20_and20_pilmanis29_.20_two20_papers20_discuss20_plant-soil20_interactions20_via20_effects20_of20_differences20_in20_litter20_quality20_in20_specific20_ecosystems3a_20_california27_27_s20_pygmy20_forest20_28_northup20_et20_al.20_29_20_and20_the20_alaskan20_taiga20_28_schimel20_et20_al.20_29_. _28_van="" breemen="" and="" _finzi29_2c_="" three="" papers="" deal="" with="" particular="" effects="" of="" plants="" on="" soil="" _properties3a_="" mineralogy="" _28_kelly="" et="" al.="" _29_2c_="" structure="" _28_angers="" _caron29_="" fertility="" _28_berendse29_.="" _next2c_="" five="" take="" up="" plant-soil="" interactions="" in="" specific="" _biomes3a_="" forests="" _28_binkley="" _giardina3b_="" gobran="" grasslands="" _28_burke="" _al.3b_="" epstein="" _29_="" deserts="" _28_schlesinger="" _pilmanis29_.="" two="" discuss="" via="" differences="" litter="" quality="" _ecosystems3a_="" _california27_27_s="" pygmy="" forest="" _28_northup="" the="" alaskan="" taiga="" _28_schimel="">
