From the reviews of the first edition: "This volume is a collection of 18 review articles on a range of topics in soil biology. ... The theme of this volume reflects some current and well established topics in soil biology. ... This book is ... valuable to readers with some knowledge of soil science, but with only basic training in biology, who wish to increase their understanding of aspects of soil biology." (D. W.
