Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This collection of seven papers by different authors, touches on the six subdivisions of soil science: plant-soil interactions, soil management, chemistry, physics, and microbiology. Paper topics include the effect of soil structure, tillage, and aggregation on soil hydraulic properties; transport of inorganic solutes in soil; modeling coupled processes in porous media; microbial distributions, activities, and movement in the terrestrial subsurface; and the mechanics of soil-root interactions.
