Soil Ecology is an exciting textbook for all those concerned with the environment. The author meets the increasing challenge faced by environmental scientists, ecologists, agriculturalists and biotechnologists for an integrated approach to soil ecology. Intellectually enticing and yet eminently readable, the book sets out both fundamental theory and principle to give the reader a thorough grounding in soil ecology. The author emphasises the interrelations between plants, animals and microbes. The fundamental physical and chemical properties of the soil habitat are clearly set out, enabling the reader to explore and understand the processes of soil nutrient cycling and the ecology of extreme soil environments. The book will appeal to advanced undergraduates and graduates in environmental science, plant science, ecology, microbiology and agriculture.

The text belongs on the bookshelf of any biologist interested in the environment and of some biologists who should be. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend it highly." D. A. Crossley Jr., BioScience
