The book is divided into seven major chapters and each chapter is further subdivided into various subtopics. The first chapter introduces and outlines the origin, distribution, and cycling of nitrogen in natural and agricultural terrestrial ecosystems. Chapter 2 focuses on the processes of decomposition and mineralization-immobilization turnover. A theoretical basis for ecosystem analysis with particular reference to element cycling. Pages 28–40 in F.G. Howell, J.B. Gentry and M.H. Smith, editors. Mineral cycling in southeastern ecosystems. The extensive heavy-mineral sand deposits in the southeastern U.S. coastal plain represent an enormous, under-utilized domestic source of these mineral resources. The United States is heavily reliant on imports of these mineral commodities, which are critical to the U.S. economy and security.

To provide clearer insight into the role that mineral cycling has played in the evolution of forest ecosystems, we have collected and compared IBP data sets concerning production and mineral cycling. We here analyze these data sets and make comparisons among them. Our principal contribution has been to assemble and summarize this information.
