Soils : Genesis and Geomorphology. Soils : Genesis and Geomorphology is a comprehensive and accessible textbook on all aspects of soils. The book’s introductory chapters on soil morphology, physics, mineralogy and organisms prepare the reader for the more advanced and thorough treatment that follows. Unlike other books on soils, the authors devote considerable space to discussions of soil parent materials and soil mixing (pedoturbation), along with dating and paleoenvironmental reconstruction techniques. Theory and processes of soil genesis and geomorphology form the backbone of the book, rather than the emphasis on soil classification that permeates other soils textbooks. This refreshingly readable text takes a truly global perspective, with many examples from around the world sprinkled throughout. Replete with hundreds of high-quality figures and a large glossary, this book will be invaluable for anyone studying soils, landforms and landscape change. Soils: Genesis and Geomorphology is an ideal textbook for mid- to upper-level undergraduate and graduate level courses in soils, pedology and geomorphology. It will also be an invaluable reference text for researchers. Randall Schaetzl is a Professor of Geography at Michigan State University, East Lansing. He has trained as a physical geographer at some of the top departments in the USA, and has established himself as a leading figure in soil genesis and geomorphology research. He has published in all the leading soils, geomorphology and geography journals. Schaetzl is an associate editor for the Soil Science Society of America Journal. His expertise on podzolization and pedoturbation has led him to publish papers that have advanced the theory behind both these widespread soil processes. Sharon Anderson is an Associate Professor at California State University, Monterey Bay. Anderson has a broad educational background in geology, chemistry, plant–soil relations and soil chemistry, and has a publication record in all of these areas. Her research has spanned the areas of soil organic matter composition, soil mineralogy, pesticide fate in the environment and water quality. As Chair of the Earth Systems Science and Policy Program, her current work focusses on developing rigorous yet applied, interdisciplinary curricula. ...
