Soil science

Goudzwaard, L

Forest soil is one of the most dominant environmental factors determining the structure and function of forest ecosystems. The soil properties affect natural processes such as the rate of wood production within the tree, and ecosystem succession. Soil data and information are relevant in a number of policy areas: agriculture, soil protection, water protection, nature protection, development policy, health and sustainable development. Soil science is based on knowledge in the areas of chemistry, physics, geology, climatology, plant sciences and microbiology.
