It has a discussion on soil management and environmental impacts, emphasis on the applications of soil science to the solution of practical problems in soil and land management and real world examples drawn from the author's international experience in the field.;It has a thoroughly updated art package, with new colour photographs and diagrams to help students visualize key concepts; new problem sets at the end of each chapter, designed to reinforce important principles and an answer key is provided at the end of the text.
