Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'… a comprehensive new text that brings the excitement of discovery back into soil science … an enthusiastic presentation of the complexity and beauty of soils and the landscapes they occupy. The writing is clear without being simplistic and the numerous figures illustrate the concepts admirably … The book will be essential reading for teachers, students, researchers, field soil scientists and all who have an interest in soil geomorphology.' Dan Muhs, US Geological Survey

'… a landmark publication in the study of soils … This book should be unusually versatile, suitable at advanced undergraduate and graduate levels for courses in pedology, soil geography, and soil geomorphology. It is a remarkable volume, quite unlike any other soils books out there.' Vance Holliday, Professor of Anthropology and Geosciences, University of Arizona

'… a well written, refreshing, and sorely needed addition to the fields of soils, geomorphology, physical geography, ecology, archaeology, and Quaternary geology. This book has it all … I predict wide adoption in courses that treat these subjects. It is not just a text, it is a useful compendium, a comprehensive all-encompassing goldmine … It will be a welcome addition to the shelves of all who claim any field of environmental science as part of their research or teaching domain. Kudos to the authors for a job well done.' Donald Johnson, Emeritus Professor of Geography, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

'… provides a critical bridge between historical and contemporary approaches and theories utilized in Pedology. The scope of the book is broad and the presentation is robust, quantitative and highly interdisciplinary and places the science of Pedology more in line with regional and global perspectives of soil.' E. F. Kelly, Professor of Pedology, Colorado State University

'This fresh treatment of the discipline of Pedology is very welcome. Schaetzl and Anderson have crafted a book that is highly readable, utterly up to date and thorough, with dazzling illustrations.' Alan Busacca, Professor of Pedology and Geology, Washington State University

'… a very readable and well-illustrated text that covers all the bases. Finally, we can offer our students a single text that provides a thorough introduction to soil genesis, classification, and soil geomorphology. I'm sure this will become the standard text in the discipline for many years to come. I'm definitely going to adopt it for my Soil Genesis and Geomorphology class at Iowa.' Art Bettis, Associate Professor of Soils and Quaternary Geology, University of Iowa

Canadian Geographer

'… lavishly illustrated, with an extensive reference list providing the student reader with a ready gateway into the research literature. A large glossary of terms associated with both soils and geomorphology is … a welcome addition to the book. … there is absolutely no doubt this book is one of great quality and a more than welcome addition to the academic communities of both soil science and geomorphology.' Environmental Conservation

'… important for scholars of soils and geomorphology and also useful for hydrogeologists, environmental geologists and engineers.' Environmental Geology

'This is a rare textbook: well-written, comprehensive, up-to-date, thought-provoking and refreshingly opinionated.' Annals of the Association of American Geographers

'This is undoubtedly an important addition to the soils textbook literature, and for anyone teaching or researching in the areas of pedology or landscape change it is an extremely useful reference.' The Holocene

'The book can be used in courses on soil geography, soil genesis, penology and soil geomorphology. It will be important for scholars of soils and geomorphology and also useful for hydrogeologists, environmental geologists and engineers.' Environmental Geology

Présentation de l'éditeur

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. Theory and processes of soil genesis and geomorphology form the backbone of the book, rather than the emphasis on soil classification that permeates other less imaginative 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.

A long time coming! 11 juillet 2007
Par T. Jackson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book was begging to be written for the longest time. Thank goodness Randy went ahead and did it. The book fills a void in soil science by linking soil formation and geomorphology, an obvious connection. It is well-written in terms of organization and style. I can tell that Randy certainly enjoys studying soils, as his enthusiasm pours off the pages. Not only that, but he and his co-author clearly have the knowledge and background to put forth such a work.

I recommend this book for anyone interested in soils, but especially for a college-level text book for any soils-related course.

An outstanding book on soils for amateurs and professionals alike 26 mars 2009
Par Michael W. Wilpers - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I am an adult student in a 13-course Natural History curriculim run by the local Audubon society and the USDA. Of all the soils books I have sampled, this one provides the greatest depth and range and seemingly endless new avenues for appreciation and discovery. It's a lifetime investment for a life-time of learning. The new price is very steep, so it's worth waiting for a used copy to become available at a reasonable price.

This is a laudable first edition textbook in a field that has gone for some time without a satisfying reference. The subject matter is the science of how soils form in relation to geology and landform.

The subject matter is extremely dense but clearly and engagingly presented, and in a meaningful sequence. A background in soil science and mineralogy is helpful but not critical. Especially welcome are the tables that compile information and the graphs and diagrams that illustrate key concepts. There are no color plates as in other soils textbooks but I did not find this a glaring omission.

Although I am sure there are some weaknesses or omissions, I did appreciate the global perspective -- the authors are not bound to any one school of interpretation or classification system. The book is also very successful in providing the history of how this field of study developed and in depicting the contributions (and personalities) of the scientists who founded pedogenesis and geomorphorphology. However dry soil science may appear to non-specialists, it appears to be populated by colorful characters so it is nice to get a sense of that in a textbook.

A couple of topics are given short shrift in my opinion -- such as wetland formation and classification, the peneplain concept, and the utilization of advanced technologies (GIS, remote sensing) to advance analysis and landscape-scale applications. I also found the index inadequate in searching for topics of interest, having better luck with the table of contents.

This is an auspicious start for a much-needed reference that I hope will see future editions.

Simply the best 8 octobre 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Simply the best book on Soil Genesis and Geomorphology. Compared to other books on the subject, this one not only provides greater depth but is also better organized and illustrated. The superb synthesis of information will make this a useful book for both students of Soil Science and related disciplines. Typically to get a full picture of Soil Genesis and Geomorphology, as presented in this book, one would have to reference multiple books and journal articles.

Hopefully this book will become THE standard for courses on Soil Genesis and Geomorphology. Typically Soil Genesis is taught in conjunction with Soil Classification, rather than Soil Geomorphology. Therefore such courses (and books) cover similar information on Soil Genesis, but lectures (and chapters) are organized around the higher taxonomic classes (Soil Orders), instead of soil processes such as in this book. Soil Classification is an important aspect of Soil Science. Therefore, this book provides a thorough chapter on Soil Classification and Mapping, which covers the components and historical developments of Soil Taxonomy.

I can only think of two shortcoming of this book. The first is that due to its size, it would be impossible to cover all this material in a single college semester. Therefore, Instructors (and students) will have to decide what material to cover. The second it that it does not incorporate information on recent technological developments pertinent to Soil Genesis and Geomorphology, such as addressed by Pedometrics or Geomorphometry. Hopefully in future additions the authors can remedy this omission.
