Land Use. Ag Ed Environmental Education Series.
Tulloch, Rodney W.
Land use is the subject of the student resource unit to be used with high school vocational agriculture students. Uses of the land in an urban environment, suburban environment, rural environment (as cropland, forest, and others), recreation and parks, and other environments are described. The supply of and demand for land is discussed. Conservation of land resources is treated from two points of view (1) sediment and plant nutrients, and (2) soil formation. The eight land capability classes are described and illustrated. Questions regarding planned land use in a free-enterprise system are raised. The purposes and impact of public lands are described, as are the societal values of land use. Nonrenewable mineral resources present a special problem. Economic, governmental, educational, and religious institutions play a role in land use along with custom and habit. There is an 18-item bibliography. (MS)
