About this book

With a decrease in per capita land area, increasingly severe soil degradation, and rising global temperatures, the dependence of food security on soil quality is likely to increase exponentially. "Food Security and Soil Quality" collates, reviews, and synthesizes the available research information on food security and soil quality at a regional scale. It discusses the global food crisis and the impact of soil quality and how soil quality relates to climate change and agronomic productivity. This book is a useful resource for those involved with agriculture, environmental science, natural resources, and food and resource economics.
