Soil Science and Management, fifth edition emphasizes the human interaction with and effect on soils, rather than treating the soil as an independent element. Non-technical and easy-to-understand, Soil Science and Management, fifth edition teaches the essentials of soils from the perspective of farmers, horticulturalists, environmentalists and other who are concerned about how soils work and how they are used more effectively. An emphasis on management and the sustainable use of soil and water resources makes it especially relevant to these audiences. The inclusion of nutrient management, best practices and relevant legal issues and government programs make this text a practical application for readers. Four-color illustrations have been added through-out the text, making it a much more visually appealing book. An eResource that includes an Instructor's Manual, PowerPoint slides, and a testbank is available to assist instructors in organizing class material, and lesson plans. In addition, the text has an Instructor's Guide, Lab Manual, Lab Manual Instructor's Guide to accompany it. Lastly, a student Studyware CD-ROM has been created to allow students to self-test through the use of various games.
