In the first published study of its kind, the authors of this book have attempted to address major aspects of the microbial Bibliography of soils of the tropics book of soil in the tropics. Tropical conditions serve as an ideal context for a discussion of soil microbiology, since biological processes in the soil are particularly active in tropical environments in comparison to other settings and in relation to physical and chemical processes.

The term ‘tropical soils’ is not as geographically inclusive as might be inferred from the name. From a pedological point of view, the term traditionally does not include all soils occurring in tropical environments, soils of low‐latitude deserts typically being excluded, as are some pedogenically young (poorly developed) soils.

Description Bibliography of soils of the tropics EPUB

This book focuses on shifting cultivation and the associated processes of secondary succession and soil fertility restoration in the tropics. Thus, it is important to define the tropics and outline their main features, as the agricultural system of shifting cultivation is focused on this region.

Tropical soil systems suffer a range of constraints against crop development, which affect radionuclide transfer as discussed in Section Table was taken directly from Norman et al. () and contains a list of the factors adversely affecting agricultural activities in the hot wet tropics, together with estimates of the area and relative proportions of soils affected by those factors.

Tropical soils are found in tropical regions between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. These soils are distinctive to their area due to natural factors, such as the ocean, wildlife and decomposing minerals found in the earth around the equator.

Understanding the characteristics of tropical soils will help you to identify what. This book is based on a course with the same title given at North Carolina State University for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Its purpose is to apply principles of soil science to tropical conditions, with emphasis on ways to increase food production in developing countries.

It is aimed to serve as a textbook for courses on tropical soils and as reference for agricultural Cited by:   Focused on tropical areas and their unique problems and issues, this work examines all aspects of residual soils engineering, including both theoretical and practical aspects.

This book gives the practitioner a thorough understanding of the characteristics of these soil types, their formation and their material properties, while guidelines on appli5/5(1). The book by Juo and Franzluebbers is the best book ever written on the subject of tropical soils and their management for sustainable agriculture.

Authors discused systematically the properties of the major tropical soils, their linkage with agroecosystems and management options based on current knowledge.5/5(1). Highlighting the vast differences in tropical climate, from hot and humid to cool and arctic, Soils in the Humid Tropics and Monsoon Region of Indonesia explores the climate, soil zones, and altitudinal variation in soil formation.

The author explores the changes in geomorphology, especially in climate and vegetation above sea level, that have yielded zones of different by:.
