Reviews

@from:J.R. Bachmann @qu:...particularly useful for researchers and practitioners in environmental disciplines, who are interested, but not specialized, in soil water repellency. ...is recommended for students and managers of natural resources, such as agronomists, foresters, hydrologists, botanists, geologists, and geographers, as well as civil, sanitary, and chemical engineers. It is also a valuable source book for graduate students concerned with plant production, soil quality, as well as ground water and surface water hydrology. @source:Journal of Environmental Quality
