  • Carbon Sequestration in Urban Ecosystemsby Rattan Lal; Bruce Augustin

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Urbanization drastically alters the ecosystems structure and functions, disrupts cycling of C and other elements along with water. It alters the energy balance and influences climate at local, regional and global scales. In 2008, urban population exceeded the rural population. In 2050, 70 per cent of the world population will live in urban centers.... more...

  • Soil Emission of Nitrous Oxide and its Mitigationby David Ussiri; Rattan Lal

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Nitrous oxide gas is a long-lived relatively active greenhouse gas (GHG) with an atmospheric lifetime of approximately 120 years, and heat trapping effects about 310 times more powerful than carbon dioxide per molecule basis. It contributes about 6% of observed global warming. Nitrous oxide is not only a potent GHG, but it also plays a significant... more...

  • Soil Water and Agronomic Productivityby Rattan Lal; B.A. Stewart

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 146.95

    Crop water use can be increased by management of surface runoff, groundwater, irrigation, and soil water. Technological innovations to enhance availability of water for agricultural crops depend on soil and site-specific conditions. Devoted to the principles and practices of enhancing water use efficiency, Soil Water and Agronomic Productivity addresses... more...

  • Soil Quality and Biofuel Productionby Rattan Lal; B.A. Stewart

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 154.95

    From its humble beginning in the late 19th century?when Henry Ford?s first car was designed to run on ethanol?biofuel production has been on the rise with more than 26 billion liters produced in the U.S. in 2007. Ethanol made from biomass (rather than grains) holds great promise, including numerous economic and environmental benefits. However, the... more...

  • Principles of Sustainable Soil Management in Agroecosystemsby Rattan Lal; B.A. Stewart

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 139.95

    With the use of high-level soil management technology, Africa could feed several billion people, yet food production has generally stagnated since the 1960s. No matter how powerful the seed technology, the seedling emerging from it can flourish only in a healthy soil. Accordingly, crop yields in Africa, South Asia, and the Caribbean could be doubled... more...
