Springer 1 edition | English | ISBN-0792371232 | PDF | 684 pages | 27.4 MB

This book first synthesises in a complete, accessible way all the basic knowledge provided by the different disciplines of Soil Science. It then proposes integrative concepts and models that organise this knowledge, taking into account the multiple interactions that exist at a number of different scales among the living and inanimate components. This consideration of basic knowledge in a novel integrative approach is necessary to make significant progress in such critical issues as the improvement of the sustainability of soil and land use, the maintenance or restoration of soil quality, the understanding of the function and value of soil biodiversity, the role of soils in carbon sequestration, and the effects of global changes upon their function.

Springer | 2008-01-08 | ISBN-3540745424 | 294 Pages | PDF | 1.9MB

"Secondary Metabolites in Soil Ecology" focus on the role of bacterial, fungal and plant secondary metabolites in soil ecosystems. Our understanding of the biological function of secondary metabolites is surprisingly limited, considering our knowledge of their structural diversity and pharmaceutically relevant activities. The volume reviews functional aspects of secondary metabolite production, with a focus on interactions among soil organisms.

Topics such as truffle metabolites and burnt phenomenon, ecology of mycotoxins in soil, root exudates, and chemical interactions between Streptomyces and mycorrhiza fungi are treated. Further aspects are the role of microbial metabolites as quorum sensing signals, their role in protecting plants against pathogens and the effect of volatiles on soil invertebrates. Chapters describing techniques for the detection of antibiotics in soil and the application of metabolomics to rhizosphere research, which has advanced rapidly in recent years, complement the book.

Environmental History of the Hudson River: Human Uses That Changed the Ecology, Ecology That Changed Human Uses By Robert E. Henshaw, Frances F. Dunwell
2011 | 376 Pages | ISBN: 143844026X , 1438440278 | PDF | 20 MB

The diverse contributions to Environmental History of the Hudson River examine how the natural and physical attributes of the river have influenced human settlement and uses, and how human occupation has, in turn, affected the ecology and environmental health of the river.

Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, SYMPHONY OF THE SOIL is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. The film also examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil's key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental problems of our time. Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers, SYMPHONY OF THE SOIL is an intriguing presentation that highlights possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet.
