Summary

This book provides an in-depth look at the soil biota responsible for maintaining soil ecological functions and how they are impacted by agricultural management, and explores how agricultural practitioners can adjust their practices to allow the soil to work for them. A multi-scale approach is considered, whereby agricultural management can be considered for its beneficial effects on farms, agricultural landscapes, and watersheds. Realistic and practical, this book considers how to enhance the functions and ecological interactions of the soil biota in agricultural ecosystems to sustain our soil for future generations.
