Microbial Ecology of the Soil and Plant Growth describes the soil medium as well as the microorganisms that it harbors and the constraints they undergo.
- Defines the principal characteristics of the subterranean world and describes the microorganisms that live there as well as the environmental constraints they are subjected to
- Shows how the action of the microorganisms can modify the physico-chemical surroundings, the microbiological equilibria and the growth of plants
- Dwells on a few methods of intervention that would help in limiting the proliferation of harmful microorganisms and how to make the best use of the activity of auxiliary microorganisms
- Inert Components
- Living Components of the Soil
- Biological Activity of the Soil
- Effect of Environment on Microorganisms
- Modifications of Physico-chemical Characteristics of the Environment
due to the Effect of Microorganisms
- Interactions between Microorganisms
- Interactions between Microorganisms and Plants
- Why Intervene?
- Interventions against Unfavourable Organisms
