Volume 10 of this continuing series explores the most complex microbial ecosystem providing definitive reviews of recent developments in soil science. It presents new techniques of chemical analysis and refinements of environmental protection measures as well as considering methods for maximizing agricultural yields. The book also covers a wide range of biochemical processes and practical applications of advanced biotechnologies.
