Human Dimensions of Soil and Water Conservation: A Global Perspective $285.00
Editors: Ted L. Napier (Ohio State University, Ohio)
Book Description:
Degradation of soil and water resources due to food and fiber production has been a concern for centuries in all societies on this planet. While some geographical regions of the world have experienced higher rates of degradation than others due to topography, rainfall, and level of technological development, societies in all regions of the globe have experienced reduced socio-economic viability due to soil displacement on agricultural land. Soil erosion frequently results in reduced productivity of crop land which contributes to loss of future farm income, decline in land value, and reduced output of food and fiber. This book presents and discusses the concerns and strategies being put into place in regards to soil and water conservation on a global level.
