Soil conservation and protection

Most popular at the top

  • Theory and Practice of Soil Loss Control in Eastern Chinaby J. C. Zhang; D.L. DeAngelis; Juzhong Zhuang

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    After the 1998 flood of the Yangtze River, one of the world's most important rivers, environmental experts realized that, to control flooding, much more attention must be paid to vegetation cover on bare lands, thin forest land, and shrub-covered land in mountain areas. In 1999, an environmental monitoring project of the forests in 11 provinces... more...

  • The European Landscape Conventionby Michael Jones; Marie Stenseke

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    This important and insightful book provides, for the first time, a broad presentation of ongoing research into public participation in landscape conservation, management and planning, following the 2000 European Landscape Convention which came into force in 2004. The book examines both the theory of participation and what lessons can be learnt from... more...

  • Handbook of Erosion Modellingby Roy P. C. Morgan; Mark Nearing

    Wiley 2011; US$ 164.95

    The movement of sediment and associated pollutants over the landscape and into water bodies is of increasing concern with respect to pollution control, prevention of muddy floods and environmental protection. In addition, the loss of soil on site has implications for declining agriculturalproductivity, loss of biodiversity and decreased amenity and... more...

  • Farm Land Erosionby S. Wicherek

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 355.00

    During the last twenty years, mutations within agricultural systems in France and Europe have brought on a spectacular worsening of soil erosion and degradation. This volume, contributed to by scientists from 25 countries, discusses how this risk can be evaluated, and which solutions should be adopted without radically disturbing the socio-economic... more...

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

    Taylor and Francis 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...

  • Soil Degradation, Conservation and Remediationby Khan Towhid Osman

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    In view of the grave consequences of soil degradation on ecosystem functions, food security, biodiversity and human health, this book covers the extent, causes, processes and impacts of global soil degradation, and processes for improvement of degraded soils. Soil conservation measures, including soil amendments, decompaction, mulching, cover cropping,... more...

  • Slope Stabilization and Erosion Control: A Bioengineering Approachby Roy P.C. Morgan; R.J. Rickson

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    This book is an up-to-date review of research and practice on the use of vegetation for slope stabilization and control of surface erosion caused by water and wind. From a basic understanding of the principles and practices of vegetation growth and establishment, it describes how vegetation can be treated as an engineering material and used to solve... more...

  • Soil Geography of the USAby James G. Bockheim

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Since 1980, our understanding of the factors and processes governing the distribution of soils on the Earth?s surface has increased dramatically, as have the techniques for studying soil patterns. The approach used?in this book?relies on the National Resources Conservation Service databases to delineate the distribution of each of the eight diagnostic... more...

  • Soil Erosion and Conservationby R. P. C. Morgan

    Wiley 2009; US$ 97.95

    Soil Erosion and Conservation provides a comprehensive treatment of the processes of soil erosion, the methods that can be used for their control, and the issues involved in designing and implementing soil conservation programmes. Features of the third edition of this internationally recognised textbook include: New material on gully erosion,... more...

  • Soil Erosion and Sediment Redistribution in River Catchmentsby P.N. Owens; A.J. Collins

    CABI 2006; US$ 150.00

    There can be little doubt that issues relating to soils and sediments are moving up the political agenda, and a realization that we need to collectively manage and protect both soil and water resources. In order to manage this delicate interface, attention is being increasingly directed towards holistic land-river management, demanding a greater appreciation... more...
