Sustaining Soil Productivity in Response to Global ClimateChange: Science, Policy, and Ethics is amulti-disciplinary volume exploring the ethical, political andsocial issues surrounding the stewardship of our vital soilresources. Based on topics presented by an international group ofexperts at a conference convened through support of theOrganization for Economic Co-operation and Development, chaptersinclude scientific studies on carbon sequestration, ecosystemservices, maintaining soil fertility, and the effects of greenhousegas emissions, as well as ethical issues ranging from allocation ofland use to policies needed for climate change adaptation andmitigation.
Bringing together the latest research in soil science andclimatology, Sustaining Soil Productivity in Response to GlobalClimate Change is a valuable resource for soil and plantscientists, agronomists and environmental scientists, as well asagricultural and natural resources engineers and economists,environmental policy makers and conservationists.

Key Features:
* Written by an international group of authors representing across-section of scientists, thought leaders, andpolicy-makers
* Includes chapters on the potential effects of climate change onforest soil carbon, microbial function, and the role of soils andbiogeochemistry in the climate and earth system
* Explores historical development of land use ethics andstewardship
