Gliessman's Field and Laboratory Investigation in Agroecology offers step-by-step guidance for laboratory and field investigations.

Each step is outlined, eliminating the possibility of error and focusing the investigation towards success.
Topics for inquiry range from the simple measurement of soil temperature and moisture, to studies of allelopathic potential and Rhizobium nodulation. From the basic to the complex, Gliessman's manual investigates a broad scope of issues relevant to agroecology today. The book is accessible, illuminating, and indispensable.
