Soil Health and Climate Change2559
"Soil Health and Climate Change" presents a comprehensive overview of the concept of soil health, including the significance of key soil attributes and management of soil health in conventional and emerging land use systems in the context of climate change. Starting with a review of the physical, chemical and biological indicators of soil health and their significance for monitoring the impacts of climate change, this book then focuses on describing the role of soil structure, pH, organic matter, nitrogen, respiration and biota in sustaining the basic functions of soil ecosystems, and their anticipated responses to climate change. Further topics include the management of cropping, pastoral, and forestry systems, and rehabilitated mine sites, with a focus on mitigation of and adaptation to climate change impacts. Finally, the opportunities and potential risks of organic farming, biochar and bioenergy systems, and their ability to sustain and even enhance soil health, are discussed.

"The book serves as an excellent introduction and review of the literature on how a changing climate may affect soil health and provides suggestions for future research. As such, it will be invaluable to advanced students looking for an accessible overview of an expanding area of literature. It will also be useful to scientists and policy makers seeking an introduction or update on the state of current knowledge surrounding this important area of research. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals." (J. R. Reeve, Choice, Vol. 49 (6), February, 2012) "This book compiles recent literature related to soil health and impact of climate change. It also focuses on soil attributes and how soil properties vary in response to climate. It covers land-use pattern and organic farming, and discusses the impact of climate change and possible management approaches. This book is highly useful for a wide spectrum of readers, including scientists, researchers, teachers and students." (Akhilesh Kumar, Current Science, Vol. 112 (6), March, 2017)
