From the Back Cover:

The critical role of the soil system in influencing ecosystem processes at the local, national and global scale is increasingly appreciated by policy makers and earth scientists, as growing demands for food and biofuel production put intense pressure on soil resources. Global climate change has the potential to sharply accelerate soil degradation, making maintaining and enhancing   soil productivity a high priority for developing food security policies. These strategies must be crafted holistically to ensure that short-term supplies can be met without sacrificing long-term degradation of  soil resources due to erosion, pollution, and physical and chemical deterioration.
