Title
The global biogeochemical silicon cycle
Author
Abstract
Silicon is one of the most important elements in the current age of the anthropocene. It has numerous industrial applications, and supports a high-tech multibillion Euro industry. Silicon has a fascinating biological and geological cycle, interacting with other globally important biogeochemical cycles. In this review, we bring together both biological and geological aspects of the silicon cycle to provide a general, comprehensive review of the cycling of silicon in the environment. We hope this review will provide inspiration for researchers to study this fascinating element, as well as providing a background environmental context to those interested in silicon.
