- CABI 2001; US$ 120.00
Soil degradation and nutrient depletion have become serious threats to agricultural productivity in Africa. Soils cannot supply the quantities of nutrients required and yield levels decline rapidly once cropping commences. This book addresses these issues. more...
- CABI 2002; US$ 145.00
Successful agroforestry requires an understanding of the complex relationship between trees, crops and soils. This book provides a review of both social and biophysical aspects of soil use and research in agroforestry in the tropics, with an emphasis on nutrient-poor forest and savanna soils. more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 169.00
Contains articles from a workshop on "Modelling water and nutrient dynamics in crop-soil systems". This book provides data sets from lysimeters and experimental fields of multiyear crop rotations. It describes the applications of 18 different modelling approaches describing soil-crop-atmosphere interactions for water, nitrogen and carbon... more...
- CABI 2004; US$ 155.00
This book provides a synthesis of plant-soil interactions in agroforestry, intercropping and grass-legume interactions. It focuses on the process level, which is relevant to many types of multi-species agro-ecosystems. It also links basic research to practical applications in a wide range of systems with or without trees, and considers effects of global... more...

There are three types of rock?igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Sedimentary rocks form from the weathering, erosion, transportation and deposition of older rocks. Applied Sedimentology describes the formation, transportation and deposition of sediment, and the post-depositional processes that change soft sediment into sedimentary rock. Sedimentary... more...

Vertisols, one of the eleven established soil orders, are clay soils with unusual and interesting properties. They cover more than 350 million hectares of land in the world and in tropical Africa alone there are over 100 million hectares. Because of their very small particle size and high surface area, these soils have higher physical and chemical... more...

Soil is a complex body that exists as many types, each with diverse properties that may vary widely across time and space as a function of many factors. This complexity makes the evaluation of soil quality much more challenging than that of water or air quality. Evaluation of soil quality now considers environmental implications as well as economic... more...
