Biological Features of the Soil: Advanced Crop and Soil Science. A Course of Study.
Miller, Larry E.
The course of study represents the third of six modules in advanced crop and soil science and introduces the agriculture student to biological features of soil. Upon completing the two day lesson, the student will: (1) realize the vast amount of life present in the soil, (2) be able to list representative animal and plant life in the soil by size, and (3) be able to list some of the detrimental processes of soil organisms. The course outline suggests teaching procedures, behavioral objectives, teaching aids and references, problems, a summary, and evaluation. Following the lesson plan, pages are coded for use as handouts and overhead transparencies. A materials source list for the complete soil module is included. (MW)
