Synopsis: This textbook is aimed at the majority of students, who need toquickly acquire a concise overview of soil science. Many currentsoil science textbooks still cater for a traditional student marketwhere students embark on three years study in a narrow discipline.The growth in modular degree schemes has meant that soil science isnow often taught as self-standing unit as part of broad baseddegree program. Students pursuing this type of course areincreasingly reluctant to purchase expensive textbooks that are toodetailed and often assume a scientific background. For those optingto specialise in soil science there are a variety of good textbooksto choose from. This short informative guide, will be particularlyuseful for students who do not possess a traditional scientificbackground, such as those studying geography, environment science,ecology and agriculture.


  • Only textbook to cater for introductory courses in soilscience.
  • Provides an affordable concise overview of soil science.
  • Learning exercises and chapter summaries enhanceusability.
  • Annotated suggestions for further reading.
  • Based on proven and successful modular course structure.
  • Emphasis on readability and interactive learning.
  • No scientific background assumed.

From the Back Cover: Many current soil science textbooks cater for a traditional student market where able students embark on three years study in a narrow discipline. Today most degree schemes are modular and subjects such as soil science are taught as self-standing units in the first year alone. Students are less willing to read and purchase books and require informative revision textbooks which aid in passing exams. If students study soil science beyond their first year there are a variety of good textbooks to choose from on specialist topics. In reality few students study soil science to a higher level therefore this textbook would be popular both for its format and its relevance to a large population of "environmental" type students.
