Book Description:

This book is a blending of basic and applied approaches in one of the most intriguing "last frontiers" in human endeavors.

From the Back Cover:

Fundamentals of Soil Ecology
David C. Coleman
D. A. Crossley, Jr.

University of Georgia, Athens

This graduate level text reference is designed to be a bridge between ecologists and soil scientists of all sorts. There is increasing awareness that soil is the organizing center for all terrestrial ecosystems. This supplemental text examines why this is so, in terms of physics, chemistry, and biology of the soil ecosystem. Aspects of biodiversity and global change, and the important role soils play in global carbon balance, are also discussed.

Fundamentals of Soil Ecology is a holistic approach to soil biology and ecosystem function and treats soils as:
*living entities, not "black boxes"
*organizing centers for how ecosystems function over time
*filled with diverse biota, fauna, microbes, and roots
