Customer reviews

Soils are both fragile and under threat, but have always, and now more than ever, played a crucial role: producing food, regulating water cycles and quality, accumulating carbon and limiting the greenhouse effect, recycling organic matter, maintaining biodiversity, providing building and industrial materials, contributing to the aesthetic value of landscapes... the list goes on.This book summarizes current knowledge of the topic, looking at soil types and composition, ecological functioning, and management. It is highly informative, richly illustrated with drawings and photographs, and accessible to a broad readership. Teachers and students in secondary and higher education will find material for lessons in the book, and anyone for whom soils are both a distant and an everyday topic will also enjoy reading it.
