  • Trace Elements in Soils and Plants, Fourth Editionby Alina Kabata-Pendias

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 199.95

    As a teaching resource in biogeochemistry I found it had a lot of potential, giving good entry points into the literature for undergraduate students who might be given essay topics on how a particular element behaves in the plant and soil environment, particularly those elements of a more exotic bent. It also provides a lot of contextual information... more...

  • Soil Physicsby A. Kézdi

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Soil Physics: Selected Topics covers the results in the research field of soil physics, soil mechanics, and the behavior of real soils. This book is divided into six chapters and begins with an introduction to the study of the physical characteristics of soil and the complexity of superstructure of soil mechanics. The next chapter deals with the distribution... more...

  • Humic Substances, Peats and Sludgesby M H B Hayes; W S Wilson

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 300.00

    Based on the contributions given at a leading international conference, this volume concentrates on developments in the environmentally-friendly disposal of sludges and on the reawakened interest in composting which has emerged as a result of significant European directives. more...

  • Soil Compaction in Crop Productionby B.D. Soane; C. van Ouwerkerk

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

  • The Biogeochemistry of Submerged Soilsby Guy Kirk

    Wiley 2004; US$ 325.00

    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...
