Brand new Book. It acts as an anchor for roots, a purveyor of water and nutrients, a residence for a vast community of microorganisms and animals, a sanitizer of the environment, and a source of raw materials for construction and manufacturing. To develop lasting solutions to the challenges of balanced use and stewardship of the Earth, we require a fundamental understanding of soil-from its elastic, porous three-phase system to its components, processes, and reactions.

Handbook of Soil Sciences: Properties and Processes, Second Edition is the first of two volumes that form a comprehensive reference on the discipline of soil science. Completely revised and updated to reflect the current state of knowledge, this volume covers the traditional areas of soil science: soil physics, soil chemistry, soil mineralogy, soil biology and biochemistry, and pedology.

Contributors discuss the application of physical principles to characterize the soil system and mass and energy transport processes within the critical zone. They present significant advances in soil chemistry; describe how minerals are formed and transformed; and provide an introduction to the soil biota.

They also examine geomorphology, land use, hydropedology, and subaqueous soils as well as the classification and digital mapping of soil. Critical elements addressed in each section include: Descriptions of concepts and theoriesDefinitions, approaches, methodologies, and proceduresData in tabular and figure format Extensive referencesThis cohesive handbook provides a thorough understanding of soil science principles and practices based on a rigorous, complete, and up-to-date treatment of the subject matter compiled by leading scientists.

It is a resource rich in data, offering professional soil scientists, agronomists, engineers, ecologists, biologists, naturalists, and students their first point of entry into a particular aspect of the soil sciences.

Unfortunately, the concept has been a source of division among soil scientists due to its many weaknesses and contradictions [], especially when it comes to the choice of soil quality indicators and methodologies used for establishing soil quality indices. In most studies that have attempted to define soil quality and establish soil quality indices [] [] [] [], it is unfortunate that clay minerals have been overlooked.

Handbook of Endocrine Research Techniques

This is probably because most desirable soil quality indicators are those attributes that are most sensitive to management []. Given that clay minerals have a great role to play in different soil ecological functions, they need to be considered and incorporated within soil quality indicators. As already observed in soil science, this task must incorporate the joint efforts of different research fields such as interfacial and colloid chemistry, clay mineralogy, soil science, plant physiology and soil ecology.

DOI: ABSTRACT Clay minerals constitute an important component of the soil system and knowledge of their role in soil fertility is imperative for sustainable soil management and productivity. The aim of this work is to overview the influence of clay minerals on some major soil fertility attributes. The rationale for carrying out this work is that most soil fertility studies rarely incorporate soil mineralogy. Clay minerals, through their physical and chemical properties, affect soil fertility by controlling nutrient supplies and availability, through the sequestration and stabilization of soil organic matter, by controlling soil physical properties through microaggregate formation, by influencing soil acidity and controlling soil microbial population and activity.

The main processes involved in these relationships are dissolution-precipitation and adsorption-desorption processes, alongside mechanisms involving the formation of short-range-ordered phases. Therefore, the development of rapid, low-cost, reliable and efficient techniques of soil mineralogical analysis, directly applicable to soil fertility investigations, constitutes a major challenge.

Lastly, clay minerals should be considered in studies dealing with soil quality assessment, especially in the choice of soil quality indicators. Role of Clay Minerals in the Supply and Availability of Plant Nutrients Of the three major soil components solid, liquid and gas , the solid fraction is constituted by soil minerals and organic matter, which exert significant direct and indirect influences on the supply and availability of most nutrient elements [25] [26] [27].

Role of Clay Minerals on Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium Availability In general, the bulk of plant available nitrogen in soil comes from mineralization Figure 1.
