"It has been talked about for a while but, now, it has been published: a new encyclopedia of soils...impressive and comprehensive...this encyclopedia is a blessing...well-written, and very useful to refresh knowledge or gain some new. It will be a standard reference book for years to come." -Alfred E. Hartemink, ISRIC- World Soil Information, for GEODERMA, May 2005 "Very well written as a whole, with appropriate illustrations and additional readings...an excellent resource for libraries supporting agriculture." -CHOICE, September 2005 "A check on publications by the authors shows an impressive list of articles and books...covers diverse subject areas from environmental issues, management, agro-forestry techniques, food production, climate change, nutrient depletion, microbial ecology, modeling, soil strength, and more. The illustrations and other graphics are well done and add visual guides to the diverse subjects...This encyclopedia is recommended for college and research libraries. Undergraduates will find this a great resource for coursework both on the environment and soil or agriculture courses." -E-STREAMS, June 2005
