Edited by Juan Jose Ibanez, James G. Bockheim
Soil diversity (pedodiversity) is part of our natural and cultural heritage.
The preservation of the pedosphere is essential for the protection of the biosphere and the Earth's systems, the regulation of climate, and for world food security.
In this book, reputed international experts discuss the state of the art of pedodiversity analysis-analyzing the relationships among biodiversity, pedodiversity, landform diversity, lithodiversity, and land use diversity.
The first of its kind, the book is intended to be a combined handbook, historical account of pedodiversity research, and essay on its future challenges.
