Definitive Handbook of Soil Science from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Soil Sciences
edited by
2-Volume Set
Second edition
edited by Pan Ming Huang

Now in two volumes, Handbook of Soil Sciences, Second edition is a comprehensive and cohesive reference on the discipline of soil science.

This 2-volume set contains definitive descriptions of each major area in the discipline, including fundamental principles, appropriate methods to measure each property, variations in properties in different soils throughout the world, and guidelines for the interpretation of the data for various applications in agriculture, engineering, and environmental sciences.

Features:

  • Presents a thorough understanding of soil science principles and practices, based on rigorous, complete, and cutting-edge treatment of the subject
  • Offers guidelines for interpretation of the data for applications in fields such as agriculture, engineering, and environmental sciences
  • Cross-references chapters in all sections to facilitate coordination of the contents
  • Provides a comprehensive subject index for ease of use
  • Includes a new section on soil physical, chemical, and biological interfacial interactions
  • Contains extensive tables and illustrations, including an 8-page color insert in each volume

The first volume presents fundamental principles and recent advances in the traditional areas of soil science: soil physics, soil chemistry, soil mineralogy, soil biology and biochemistry, and pedology.

The second volume covers interfacial interactions between the physical, chemical, and biological regimes within the soil; the factors that control the availability of plant nutrients and microelements; interdisciplinary aspects of soil science, including salinity, sodicity, and soil erosion; and soil databases for assessing worldwide soil resources.

Critical elements addressed in each section include:

  • Descriptions of concepts and theories
  • Definitions, approaches, methodologies, and procedures
  • Data in tabular and figure format
  • Extensive references
