The Soils of Spain provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the soils of Spain gathered by a variety of experts in the field. It presents soils in the region as particularly conditioned by the naturally diverse and drastic distribution of the Spanish landscape, characterized by mountainous regions in the North and arid areas in the South. The Introduction sets the agricultural scenario in Spain as influenced by the Arabic culture and American agricultural products; the second chapter provides a classification and distribution of Spanish soils; the third chapter approaches the topic of soils in the characteristically humid Northern Iberia area as prone to diversity and soil evolution; the fourth focuses on the soils of the South and East of Spain as affected by lack of rainfall and abundance in calcic soil horizons; the fifth chapter deals with Vertisols, mainly located in Western Andalusia; the sixth chapter will discuss the topic of Mediterranean soils, dominated by characteristically red colours.
