Customer reviews

This work is the first national summary about the soil, an essential component of our environment. It provides comprehensive knowledge of the main soil resources in Metropolitan France. The data take up the basics of the inventory, mapping and associated research work on the soils, mainly under the survey "Pedological map of France", coordinated scientifically by the National Institute for Agronomic Research. With a wealth of diagrams, extracts of explanatory maps on soil distribution and numerous photographs incorporated in the accompanying CD-Rom, this book also correlates the French taxonomy used (Soil Reference Base) and the international World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB).
