Soil provides ecosystem services critical for life:soil acts as a water filter and a growing medium; provides habitat for billions of organisms, contributing to biodiversity; and supplies most of the antibiotics used to fight diseases. Humans use soil as a holding facility for solid waste, filter for wastewater, and foundation for our cities. You water and quickly see that water show up in the saucer, but the next day the soil feels dry again. A common reason is that the potting mix Author: Judy Lowe.

Books. The American Society of Agronomy (ASA), Crop Science Society of America (CSSA), and Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) have over sixty years of experience publishing print and electronic books, as well as multimedia products.
Water potential is a fundamental concept that can be used to quantify the energy status of water in soil, crop residues, municipal wastes, plants, seeds, and microorganisms. The concept provides a convenient way of applying thermodynamic terminology to the water relations of soil-plant-microbial systems.
Diurnal soil water content changes, and soil water content and soil water flux profiles at several times are compared for the two seasons. The effect of the rate of drying on cumulative evaporation is discussed. The soil water regime under natural environmental conditions was so dynamic that the three stages of drying could not be delineated.

This book is an attempt to create SPAC Soil, Plant, Atmosphere Continuum. But looks more like a series of lecture notes. Written in clear manner covering aspects of water in soil, plant and atmosphere. Each chapter also has a brief biography of famous person responsible in the topic discusses from Richards to Nielsen, Hertz, Boltzmann etc.3/5(1).
This book gives an overview of cutting theories. It starts with a generic model, which is valid for all types of soil (sand, clay and rock) after which the specifics of dry sand, water saturated sand, clay, atmospheric rock and hyperbaric rock are covered.

Relief (landscape)—The shape of the land and the direction it faces make a difference in how much sunlight the soils gets and how much water it keeps.

The first ever Soil Atlas of Latin America and the Caribbean aims to answer these questions about the origin and functions of soils through the use of striking maps, informative texts, stunning photographs and graphics.
This Atlas also describes the different soils that can be found in the region, and with the use of digital soil mapping. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.
