Minnesota's Soils and Their Uses.
There is an increasing need for land planning and understanding soil is one step toward assuring proper land use. This publication, written by soil scientists and teachers, is designed as a reference for high school teachers. It is designed to be a comprehensive collection about Minnesota soils (although the information can be applied to other areas) that non-experts can readily use. Discussed are topics such as the composition of soil, the importance of soil, soil profiles, soil classification, soil formation, soil variation, soil types, and using the soil. Illustrations, photographs, a diagram of the sulfure and nitrogen cycle, maps, figures, and tables are included. A glossary of soil-related terms used in the text and suggested references are included. (TK)
