A detailed discussion of forest soils, with emphasis on those of North America.

A detailed discussion of forest soils, with emphasis on those of North America. Includes bibliographical references (pages 343-381) and index.

Originally published in 1977, this is a comprehensive study of forest soils for foresters, wildlife and park managers, ecologists, and others interested in forest soils. It provides a valuable text for introductory and more advanced courses. The first ten chapters deal with basic soil information: texture, structure, and porosity; colour, temperature, and aeration; water; organic content; biological organisms and processes; chemistry; fertility; classification; and surveys.

Professor Armson examines the process of forest soil development, and the place of soil as a part of a continuously changing landscape from both the historical and ecological viewpoints. An appendix describes the procedures for soil profile description and sampling. Full bibliographical references are supplied.

Book Description: This is a comprehensive study of forest soils for foresters, wildlife and park managers, ecologists, and others interested in forest soils. eISBN: 978-1-4426-5633-8. Man cannot exist without soil. His history is to a very large degree the story of its use and abuse; civilizations that have flourished have always been based on an intensive use of soils for food production. Thus, from historic times knowledge and experience about soils have been related primarily to agriculture.

Physical properties of forest soils develop under natural conditions by the influence of permanent vegetation over a long period of time. The physical properties of forest soils affect every aspect of soil fertility and productivity. Physical properties of forest soils may be almost permanent properties unless modified by harvesting operations, shifting cultivation, and forest fires The physical properties of forest soils affect every aspect of soil fertility and productivity. Soil physical properties determine the ease of root penetration, the availability of water and the ease of water absorption by plants, the amount of oxygen and other gases in the soil, and the degree to which water moves both laterally and vertically through the soil.
