About this book

Language: French

This book reveals the secrets of the formation and inner workings of soil, from bedrock to the moist soil from which plants draw their nutrients. It reveals the extraordinary interactions between plant roots and soil, and the teeming life that is to be found there. Written by an experienced field naturalist, this practical guide teaches you how to detect simple clues, or perform simple experiments that will enable the beginner to "read" the soil and, beyond that, landscapes.

Le Sol, un Monde Vivant is an indispensable tool for understanding the substratum we walk on daily and which is necessary for life on every continent.
- To understand the soil and its main features
- To get the know the soils of France
- To recognize the main animal and plant organisms that live in the soil

Summary in French:
Ce livre révèle de façon limpide les secrets de la formation et du fonctionnement du sol, depuis la « roche-mère » jusqu’à l’humus où les plantes puisent leurs éléments nutritifs. On y découvre les extraordinaires interactions entre les racines des végétaux et le sol, ainsi que la vie foisonnante qui s’y déroule. Fruit de l’expérience d’une naturaliste de terrain, ce guide pratique apprend à détecter les indices très simples, ou à réaliser des expériences faciles qui permettront au débutant de « lire » les sols et, au-delà, les paysages.

C’est un outil indispensable à la compréhension du substrat que nous nous foulons quotidiennement et qui est nécessaire à la vie sur tous les continents.
- Pour comprendre le sol et ses principales caractéristiques
- Pour connaître les sols de nos régions
- Pour reconnaître les principaux organismes animaux et végétaux qui font la vie du sol
