The now venerable textbook, founded in 1922, introduces the fundamental principles of soil science both for students whose only expose to the discipline will be the one class, and for those embarking on a career in it. It emphasizes throughout the soil as a natural resource, highlighting its interaction with other components of forest, range, agriculture, wetland, and constructed systems. Following the trend in recent editions, the 13th has grown with new graphics and topics. Previous editions are cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d. ed.. Annotation c.

A textbook for both students who will take only a single course on soil science, and for those just beginning a long study of it. Also designed to be kept as a general reference. Emphasizes soil as a natural resource and highlights the many interactions between the soil and other components of the ecosystem, with examples from forest, range, agricultural, wetland, and constructed ecosystems. A venerable but often regenerated classic first published in 1922 and most recently in 1990. Highly illustrated. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
