About this book

Sustaning Soil Productivity in Response to Global Climate Change is a two-part text bringing together the latest research in soil science and climatology and the ethical, political and social issues surrounding the stewardship of this vital resource. Chapters include scientific studies on microbial function, maintaining fertility, and the effects of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as ethical issues ranging from allocation of land use to policies needed for conservation. Based on topics presented by speakers at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's conference, this text is internationally contributed to by experts in the field.
