Soil in the Environment is key for every course in soil science, earth science, and environmental disciplines. This textbook engages students to critically look at soil as the central link in the function and creation of the terrestrial environment/5. The eight lessons in this module introduce students to the science of soils. Students investigate different types of soil, components of soil, and the absorption of water into soil. They also explore the relationship between plants and soil, and the processes of recycling organic materials for use with plant included:materials lists activity descriptions questioning techniques. Soil is one of humankind's most important resources, providing for the growth of arable crops, grassland and trees, which give us food, fibre, and timber. As part of the natural environment, soil supports the plant growth needed for the cycling of gases, provides a habitat for a wide range of organisms, Cited by:
