Abstract:

Did you ever consider that with no soil there would be no life? Know Soil, Know Life will introduce you to an amazing world-the world beneath your feet. Soil is the foundation our natural living world depends on, the substance of life, the critical zone of the earth. Soil is not dirt. SOIL IS LIFE! Students will find Know Soil, Know Life is an easily accessible resource. But this book is for all ages. Everyone interested in being more environmentally conscious - the urban dweller, the young naturalist, the home gardener - can learn about the diversity of soils and their importance in our environment.

Audience: Students studying environmental science or participating in an Envirothon or Science Olympiad will find Know Soil, Know Life is an easily accessible resource. Undergraduate students in introductory ecology and environmental science classes will have a manageable soils textbook. Scientists in related disciplines wildlife, forestry, geology, hydrology, biology, zoology will enjoy this engaging introduction to soils.
