  • Biology of Soil Scienceby Charlotte Jhonson

    Oxford Book Co. 2009; US$ 50.00

    Biology of Soil Science is an important branch of agriculture which deals with studies of different areas like soil physics; soil chemistry; soil fertility and plant nutrition; soil survey, genesis and classification, soil mineralogy, etc. it is, therefore, essential that this valuable natural resource is understood and conserved properly for sustained... more...

  • Non-Timber Forest Products of Indiaby S.P. Rawat

    GeneTech Books 2008; US$ 50.00

    Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) can be defined as all goods derived from forest and their biomass for commercial and industrial use, which can be substainably extracted from a forest ecosystem in quantities and in such ways, that it does not downgrade the plant communities, basic reproductive function. For most recorded history, people have valued... more...

  • The Soils of the Philippinesby Rodelio B. Carating; Raymundo G. Galanta; Clarita D. Bacatio

    Springer 2014; US$ 229.00

    The first soil survey in the Philippines was done by Mr. Clarence Dorsey, an American soil scientist in the province of Batangas in 1903. The Soils of the Philippines, however, is the first comprehensive summary of more than a century of soil-survey work in this country. It integrates the soil concepts of the reconnaissance soil-survey results, which... more...

  • Reframing Deforestationby James Fairhead; Melissa Leach

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 79.95

    Reframing Deforestation suggests that the scale of destruction wrought by West African farmers during the twentieth century has been vastly exaggerated and global analyses have unfairly stigmatized them. more...

  • Forest Products Biotechnologyby Alan Bruce; John Palfreyman

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 220.00

    Industries are developing radical, new biotechnology processes to expand and develop their range of products that originate from the world's forests. As a result of the growing understanding of the process involved, biotechnology is also helping reduce any adverse impact on the environment.; This book presents a review of specialist research directed... more...

  • Soils and Environmentby Steve Ellis; Tony Mellor

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 73.95

    Soils represent the result of a complex set of interacting processes and are an integral component of the environment. Yet soils remain the most undervalued and misused of the Earth's resources. This work examines the fundamental importance of soils. Combining practical analysis and interpretation with a theoretical approach, the authors discuss the... more...

  • The Biogeochemistry of Submerged Soilsby Guy Kirk

    Wiley 2004; US$ 315.00

    Submerged soils and the wetlands they support are of huge practical importance: in global element cycles, as centres of biodiversity, in global food production. They are also uniquely interesting scientifically because of their peculiar biogeochemistry and the adaptations of plants and microbes to it. This book describes the physical, chemical and... more...

  • Soil and Water Chemistryby Michael E. Essington

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 85.95

    Traditionally the study of chemical principles as they relate to soil has been limited to the field of agronomics. Soil and Water Chemistry: An Integrative Approach , stands alone because it balances agricultural and environmental perspectives in its analysis of the chemical properties and processes that affect organic and inorganic soil substances.... more...

  • Scaling Methods in Soil Physicsby Yakov Pachepsky; David E. Radcliffe; H. Magdi Selim

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 199.95

    The scaling issue remains one of the largest problems in soil science and hydrology. This book is a unique compendium of ideas, conceptual approaches, techniques, and methodologies for scaling soil physical properties. Scaling Methods in Soil Physics covers many methods of scaling that will be useful in helping scientists across a range of soil-related... more...
