The function of Advances in Soil technological know-how is to supply a discussion board for best scientists to investigate and summarize the to be had clinical info on an issue, assessing its value and deciding on extra study wishes. a wide range of topics has been addressed through authors from many nations within the preliminary ten volumes of the sequence. the short attractiveness of the sequence by way of either authors and readers has been very satisfying and confirms our notion desire did exist for a medium to fill the space among the clinical journals and the great reference books. This quantity is the 1st of the sequence committed solely to a unmarried subject soil degradation. destiny volumes will comprise either single-topic volumes in addition to volumes containing studies of other issues of soil technological know-how, as on the subject of the 1st ten volumes. There are expanding quandary and a focus approximately dealing with normal re resources, rather soil and water. Soil degradation is obviously some of the most urgent difficulties dealing with mankind. even supposing the highlight relating to soil degradation in recent times has curious about Africa, problem concerning the degradation of soil and water assets is world wide. The common con cern approximately international environmental swap can also be being associated with critical difficulties of soil degradation. for that reason, we're certainly happy that the 1st quantity of the sequence dedicated to a unmarried subject addresses such an impor tant factor. the present quantity is additionally the 1st of the sequence concerning a visitor editor.
