  • Soil Enzymology in the Recycling of Organic Wastes and Environmental Restorationby Carmen Trasar-Cepeda

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Soil enzymes play a fundamental role in many soil processes such as the mineralization of organic matter, the synthesis of humic substances, the degradation of xenobiotics or the mechanisms involved in the biocontrol of plant pathogens. Their direct link with soil microorganisms gives them a key role as biomonitors of the evolution of soil quality... more...

  • Developments in Soil Classification, Land Use Planning and Policy Implicationsby Shabbir A. Shahid; Faisal K. Taha; Mahmoud A. Abdelfattah

    Springer 2012; US$ 229.00

    As the world s population continues to expand, maintaining and indeed increasing agricultural productivity is more important than ever, though it is also more difficult than ever in the face of changing weather patterns that in some cases are leading to aridity and desertification. The absence of scientific soil inventories, especially in arid areas,... more...

  • Applications of Soil Physicsby Daniel Hillel

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Applications of Soil Physics deals with the applications of soil physics and covers topics ranging from infiltration and surface runoff to groundwater drainage, evaporation from bare-surface soils, and uptake of soil moisture by plants.
