“The book ‘give lucid accounts of the principal processes of soil degradation, its effects on soil quality, plant production and human health, and methods of improvement of degraded soils’.
the book is interesting to the graduate and undergraduate students in Soil Science, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences as it provides complete aspect of soil degradation supplemented Brand: Springer Netherlands.
Soil Degradation, Restoration and Management in a Global Change Context, volume four in the Advances in Chemical Pollution, Environmental Management and Protection series, explores a wide breadth of emerging and state-of-the-art technologies and provides the best practices to manage soils affected by degradation.
Soils are the base of life, thus a sustainable soil. According to UNCCD, globally billion people depend on agriculture but 52% of the land used for agriculture is moderately or severely affected by soil degradation, land degradation affects Soil degradation includes erosion, salinization (due to freshwater removal), soil loss following erosion after deforestation or overgrazing, “compaction and crusting (of soils), [which] can be caused by cattle trampling,” and waterlogging with impaired water movement (Oldeman et al., ).It was estimated in that there was billion ha of land globally with soil.
Soil Degradation. Soil degradation is a consequence of intensive land use management, which is assumed to be caused by human impact, poverty, and a response to economic opportunities at the global level (Lambin et al., ).
From: Soil Mapping and Process Modeling for Sustainable Land Use Management, Related terms: Land Degradation. Soil degradation is one of the major global threats.
Mainly in countries like Africa, Australia, China and some part of US effects of top soil erosion are being increasingly realized.

The soil profile is changed; the top soil is turned deep inside the dumps. The erodible material is almost devoid of organic matter and lacks in mineral plant nutrients. According to an estimate, about million ha soil is degraded due to mining activity.
Impact of Soil Degradation: The following are the impacts of soil degradation: 1. The book deals with several aspects of soil erosion, focusing on its connection with the agricultural world. Chapters’ topics are various, ranging from irrigation practices to soil nutrient, land use changes or tillage methodologies.
The book is subdivided into fourteen chapters, sorted in four sections, grouping different facets of the topic: introductive case Cited by: 9. This book views soil as a fundamental resource that must urgently be protected, preserved and restored, in order to secure food for the ever-increasing human population and to maintain the health and quality of the Earth’s ecosystems.
It emphasizes the immediate and long-lasting impacts of soil degradation on agricultural productivity (crops, livestock, and fisheries), air and. This book will be of great interest to students of environmental pollution and contemporary Chinese studies looking for an introduction to the topics of soil pollution and soil degradation, and for researchers looking for an extensive list of sources and analysis of China's environmental problems more broadly.

This term previously designated the podzolization of chernozems under the influence of forest vegetation. Thus the term podzolized chernozems is now used in soil classifications. Soil retrogression and degradation are two regressive evolution processes associated with the loss of equilibrium of a stable ression is primarily due to soil erosion and corresponds to a phenomenon where succession reverts the land to its natural physical state.
Degradation is an evolution, different from natural evolution, related to the local climate and vegetation. Whilst soil degradation is recognised as a major aspect of land degradation, other processes which affect the productive capacity of cropland, rangeland and forests, such as lowering of the water table and deforestation, are captured by the concept of land degradation.

Soil degradation is a widespread problem in Africa resulting in decreased agricultural productivity while demand for food continues to increase. Degradation is caused by accelerated erosion, acidification, contamination, depletion of soil organic matter and. Soil–environment impacts Land Degradation Processes Rob W.
Fitzpatrick* Abstract This chapter describes how saline, sodic, acid and eroded soils are formed. Using simplified schematic diagrams based on Australian examples, we illustrate the major processes involved and show how some soils may act as precursors to land degradation.There are increasing concern and attention about managing natural re sources, particularly soil and water.
Soil degradation is clearly one of the most pressing problems facing mankind. Although the spotlight regarding soil degradation in recent years has focused on Africa, concern about the degradation of soil and water resources is worldwide.
A third of the planet’s land is severely degraded and fertile soil is being lost at the rate of 24bn tonnes a year, according to a new United Nations-backed study that .
