9780851988740: Soil Science and Sustainable Land Management in the Tropics

An understanding of the properties of soils, particularly those of tropical regions where soil fertility is usually low and the need for food production high, is central to the development of sustainable land management systems. This book examines the contribution that soil science can make to sustainable land management in the tropics, through a series of review chapters and case studies. Four main themes are addressed - soil and land resource evaluation, soil biology, soil erosion and conservation, and soil fertility and fertility management - although topics such as Quaternary geology and the economic context of soil science are also covered. Case studies include work from Zimbabwe, Thailand and the Philippines. The contributions have been developed from papers presented at a meeting of the British Society of Soil Science held in Newcastle upon Tyne, and will be of interest to all concerned with land management in the tropics.
