About this book

Introduction

The soils are fundamental to our existence, delivering water and  nutrients to plants, that feed us. But they are in many ways in danger and their conservation is therefore a most important focus for science, governments and society as a whole.

A team of world recognised researchers have prepared this first English edition based on the 16th European edition.

• The precusors and the processes of soil development
• The physical, biological and chemical properties of soils
• Nutrients and  Polluntants
• The various soil classifications with the main focus on the World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB)
• The most important soils and soil landscapes  of the world
• Soil Evaluation Techniques
• Basic Principles of Soil Conservation


Whoever works with soils needs this book.
