About this title

Synopsis:

This profusely illustrated book gives an exhaustive account of the principal types of soils of our planet. The "progressive descent of weathering fronts" model, recognized and used by eminent international scientists is the guiding principle of choice to link the observations and to give the reader a synthetic and coherent view of the differentiation of soils. In each case, the introductory reminders summarize the physicochemical and mineralogical principles necessary for understanding the text. The nomenclatures rely systematically and simultaneously on the two most commonly used classifications: Soil Taxonomy and World Reference Base. This reference manual is aimed at students of the undergraduate and graduate courses, but is also intended for workers and scientists in this subject area (geologists, pedologists, agronomists, land-use planners, foresters, etc.) as well as for all those concerned with or interested in protection of the environment.

Review:

"Profusely illustrated throughout with photos and diagrams, [the book] is exhaustively comprehensive, informed, informative, superbly organized and a model of seminal scholarship making it ideal as a curriculum textbook and highly recommended for professional academic library Agricultural Science and Environmental Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists."
―Midwest Book Review

"This is the English language edition of the I.e.r Grand.r Solr Du Mrmde (2007), tanslated by V. A. K. Sharma. There are four chapters on general topics, and one each on 10 globally important soil types. This book is useful to Anglophone readers because the strong French emphasis introduces unfamiliar studies and fresh concepts. It is a highly personal, almost valedictory, exposition. It organizes a great deal of material in a logical way and the text is generally succinct and clear. "
―Journal of Experimental Agriculture, 2013
