Publisher: Berlin : Springer, ©2008.
Series: Soil biology, v. 13.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This volume provides a comprehensive coverage of the principal extreme soil ecosystems of natural and anthropogenic origin. Extreme soils oppose chemical or physical limits to colonization by most soil organisms and present the microbiologist with exciting opportunities. Described here are fascinating environments, such as permafrost, saline, arid and geothermal soils, peatlands, subsurface geomaterial rich in  Read more...
