Overview

The inclusion of ecology concepts in this third edition of Soil Microbiology and Biochemistry reflects the broader applicability of the science. Expanded from 13 to 18 chapters this book reflects the great advances in molecular techniques, the broader use of tracers, and the maturation of modeling in interpretation of data and development of new concepts.

New chapters include invertebrate-microbial interactions, basic physiology, and ecological interpretations. This edition has also been expanded with contributions from leading soil microbiologists and agronomists on both fundamental and applied aspects of the science.

Students of agriculture, forestry, ecology, and environmental science will find guidance through basic concepts and applications of various soil processes as well as being introduced to microbial processes in water and sediments. This book also serves as an invaluable resource for biogeochemistry, microbiology, sustainable agriculture, and environmental amelioration researchers.
