Biology and Fertility of Soils publishes in English original papers, reviews and short communications on all fundamental and applied aspects of biology – microflora and microfauna - and fertility of soils.

It offers a forum for research aimed at broadening the understanding of biological functions, processes and interactions in soils. Based on the work of the Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility (TSBF) Programme, this handbook provides recommended and validated methods for the characterization and analysis of soils, with emphasis on the tropics, with the aim of achieving sustainable use of soil resources.

Many of the methods described are also applicable to temperate soils. Soil Science Lecture Notes. This book The biology and fertility of tropical soils book the following topics: Soil Physics - Solids, Water, Heat, Soil aeration, solute transportation, Effects of cattle grazing on soils in coniferous forests, Soil Chemistry: Ion adsorption and exchange, Soil organic matter, Soil Biology - Soil organisms, Physiology and environment of soil organisms, Soil Fertility - Soil as a source of plant nutrients.

The discussion focuses on the relevance of the Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Programme (TSBF) approach to small-scale farming but the principles elucidated may apply to.
