  • Modeling Carbon and Nitrogen Dynamics for Soil Managementby M.J. Shaffer; Liwang Ma; Soren Hansen

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 172.95

    Good management practices for carbon and nitrogen are vital to crop productivity and soil sustainability, as well as to the reduction of global greenhouse gases and environmental pollution. Since the 1950's, mathematical models have advanced our understanding of carbon and nitrogen cycling at both the micro- and macro-scales. However, many of the models... more...

  • Organic Soils and Peat Materials for Sustainable Agricultureby Leon Etienne Parent; Piotr Ilnicki

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 194.95

    While organic soils have the potential to contribute greatly to agricultural production, the irreversible processes that occur from draining organic soils need to be managed with caution. The wise use of peatlands must include the avoidance of unacceptable ecological effects on the contiguous and global environment. Organic Soils and Peat Materials... more...

  • Soil and Environmental Science Dictionaryby E.G. Gregorich; L. W. Turchenek; M.R. Carter; Denis A. Angers

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 125.95

    The lingo of soil science is a language unto itself. Soil and Environmental Science Dictionary is a glossary of terms used in soil and environmental science, including terms from related disciplines. Designed for teachers, students, researchers and others interested or involved in environmental sciences related to soils, this compilation includes all... more...

  • Soil Classificationby Hari Eswaran; Robert Ahrens; Thomas J. Rice; Bobby A. Stewart

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 159.95

    Developments in soil classification have accompanied parallel progress in our understanding of the soil system. However the theories behind the classifications and the purposes for which they were created have changed over time. The editors hope that this comprehensive synthesis will help to rally soil scientists around the world to develop an acceptable... more...

  • Soil Physics Companionby A.W. Warrick

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 159.95

    An authoritative reference on soil physics, Soil Physics Companion is lavishly illustrated with graphs, charts, line drawings, and equations. The book provides a valuable source of material and reference for most contemporary topics of soil physics and the vadose zone - arguably the most comprehensive volume available. In addition to being a reliable... more...

  • Soil Tillage in Agroecosystemsby Adel El Titi

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 194.95

    Soil tillage is, and will remain, the guiding component of soil management and consequently has far-reaching implications for agroecosystems. Understanding structures and functions of soil ecosystems under different tillage/no tillage practices is an essential requirement for any future farming concepts. Soil Tillage in Agroecosystems emphasizes these... more...

  • Chemistry of Variable Charge Soilsby T. R. Yu

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 249.99

    This book, based on research carried out at the Academia Sinica over the past 30 years, explains the basic difference between the variable charge soils of tropical and subtropical regions, and the constant charge soils of temperate regions. It will focus on the chemical properties of the variable charge soils--properties which have important bearing... more...

  • Crop-Soil Simulation Modelsby R.B. Matthews; W. Stephens

    CABI 2002; US$ 125.00

    The use of crop-soil modelling has so far been mainly confined to the research community. Practical applications have occurred in the areas of decision tools for irrigation studies and pest management. However, there is potential to increase its applied use. This book reviews progress. more...

  • Integrated Plant Nutrient Management in Sub-Saharan Africaby B. Vanlauwe; J. Diels; N. Sanginga; R. Merckx

    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...

  • Trees, Crops and Soil Fertilityby G. Schroth; F.L. Sinclair

    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...
