      An understanding of the characteristics and the ecology of soils, particularly those of forest ecosystems in the humid tropics, is central to the development of sustainable forest management systems. The present book examines the contribution that forest soil science and forest ecology can make to sustainable land use in the humid tropics.   The book is geared toward any who practice soil science in the tropics, including students, researchers, extension workers and government workers. Sanchez describes the update of the original text as “soils plus” because it goes beyond the chemical equations and soil classification charts typical of most textbooks on the topic.

Properties of urban soils are normally not favorable to plant growth—the soils are contaminated by heavy metals and are compacted and sealed. Therefore, the quality of urban soils must be restored to make use of this valuable resource for delivery of essential ecosystem services (e.g., food, water and air quality, carbon sequestration.

      formation, however, pertains to soils of the temperate zones. That soils of the different climatic zones vary ex­ tensively in th6ir properties is well-known. The necessity for a possible special approach to the study of the tropical and subtropical soils has been emphasized by many authors (13, 27, 32, 33). PREVIOUS INVESTIGATIONSFile Size: KB. The chemical, physical and mineralogical properties of each of the major soil orders found in the tropics are described. The potential of each soil group for sustaining a renewable agricultural system is discussed, and recommendations are made regarding the most appropriate system and the appropriate soil management practices. Subjects dealt with include: (1) soil climate; (2) soil Cited by:

Author Bios Rattan Lal is a professor of soil physics at The Ohio State University. Tropical Soils. Tropical Soils are found in conditions where it is very hot, and humid, with a lot of rainfall.

A lot of these soils are found around the equatorial regions from o North and South. These soils are often very deep, and are some of the oldest soils in the world.

There are tropical regions in South East Asia, Central and South. Typical soils developed in the humid and seasonally moist tropics are briefly described, and comparisons made between the two most widely used international soil classifications, Soil Taxonomy and World Reference Base for Soil Resources.

Some of the other soils found within the tropics are briefly by: Bibliography of soils of the tropics. Washington: U.S.
