From page 53...
... The authors acknowledge the significant co-benefits of managing agro-ecosystems for increasing SOC, which include improved water holding capacity and nutrient status. The chapter is generally well-constructed and the major conclusions are amply supported by cited references; however, some improvements could be made.
From page 54...
... Spatial variation often swamps temporal trends in SOC. The best indicator of how management/crop type/land use change effects SOC may be eddy covariance -- a direct measurement of Net Ecosystem Exchange.
From page 55...
... Some of these crops increase SOC by as much as 1 Mg/yr after removal of aboveground biomass. P226, Line 14-20 There is enormous potential of perennial bioenergy crops to restore SOC and reduce N20 P227, Line 7-8 Not consistent w/effects of intensive agriculture on SOC P227 Line 33-34 Remove "such as nitrates" from the end of the sentence and place before "also" P233, Line 37 Delete the word "managing" P248, Figure 5.1.
