“Soil science is the study of soil as a natural resource on the surface of the Earth including soil formation, classification and mpping; physical, chemical, biological, and fertility properties of soils; and these properties in relation to the use and management of soils. This book is aimed at the majority of students, who need to quickly acquire a concise overview of soil science. It will be particularly useful for students who do not possess a traditional scientific background, such as those studying geography, environment science, ecology and agriculture.”--Book cover
