For much of history - soil has played a major - and often central - role in the lives of humans. Entire societies have risen - and collapsed - through the management or mismanagement of soil; farmers and gardeners worldwide nurture their soil to provide their plants with water - nutrients - and protection from pests and diseases; major battles have been aborted or stalled by the condition of soil; murder trials have been solved with evidence from the soil; and - for most of us - our ultimate fate is the soil. In this book Richard Bardgett discusses soil and the many - and sometimes surprising - ways that humanity has depended on it throughout history - and still does today. Analysing the role soil plays in our own lives - despite increasing urbanization - and in the biogeochemical cycles that allow the planet to function effectively - Bardgett considers how superior soil management could combat global issues such as climate change - food shortages - and the extinction of species. Looking to the future - Bardgett argues that it is vital for the future of humanity for governments worldwide to halt soil degradation - and to put in place policies for the future sustainable management of soils....
