Scaling Methods in Soil Physics covers many methods of scaling that will be useful in helping scientists across a range of soil-related... more...

  • The Potential of U.S. Forest Soils to Sequester Carbon and Mitigate the Greenhouse Effectby John M. Kimble; Rattan Lal; Richard Birdsey; Linda S. Heath

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 262.00

    Much attention has been given to above ground biomass and its potential as a carbon sink, but in a mature forest ecosystem 40 to 60 percent of the stored carbon is below ground. As increasing numbers of forests are managed in a wide diversity of climates and soils, the importance of forest soils as a potential carbon sink grows. The Potential of... more...

  • Trace Elements in Soilby I.K. Iskandar; Mary B. Kirkham

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 199.95

    Historically, research on the methods and amounts of trace element application to agriculture soils for correcting plant deficiencies has received major attention. More recently, due to industrial development and past disposal activities, trace elements are considered to be important environmental contaminants that affect all components in the atmosphere... more...

  • Humic Substancesby G. Davies; E. Ghabbour

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 161.00

    Humic substances are ubiquitous in the environment. These remarkable brown biomaterials are found in animals, plants, coals, sediments, soils and water. They are crucial components of the carbon cycle and other life processes. Humic Substances: Nature's Most Versatile Materials contains a compilation of papers presented at the 2002 Humic Substances... more...
