Understanding Soil Change
Soil Sustainability over Millennia, Centuries and Decades
- Daniel D. Richter and Daniel Markewitz
Across the world, soils are managed with increasing intensity, yet we know little about how managed soils change through time. This book uses data from the long-term Calhoun Forest Experiment in southeastern North America to explore the legacy of soil change in a region of ecological, agricultural and forestry significance.
The resulting synthesis provides lessons for land management throughout the world and illustrates the need for a global network of similar soil-ecosystem studies to provide further information on sustainable land management, vital as human demands on soil continue to increase.
An essential book for anyone interested in soils, in human dependence on soils and on how human activities affect changes in soils and ecosystems.
The book provides an accessible synthesis of long-term observations from the Calhoun Forest Experiment, USA, presenting general conclusions from the data to provide lessons for land management throughout the world.
