Soil Microbiology - 2nd Edition
Tate, Robert L
John Wiley & Sons
Microbial organisms that live in soils are many, forming a complex interactional
chain with each other and the soil/plant environment. They are essential to the
functioning of biogeochemical cycles, such as the transformation of nitrogen in the air
into a form usable by plants. Filling an existing need for a text for the beginning student,
the Second Edition of the standard reference on the subject has been rewritten to include
more basic material as well as nonagronomic aspects of soil science such as
bioremediation. New chapters include "Biological Diversity of Soil Ecosystems," "Soil
Remediation," and "Soil Systems Management and Global Aspects."
