About this book

Eleven chapters present a concise description of the soils of Israel, including their distribution, chemical, physical mineralogical characteristics and agricultural attributes. On the background of the various soil-forming factors such as climate, lithology and physiography the pathways of their formation is discussed. Based on the relationships between soils and soil-forming factors, the distribution of the different soil types is explained. An ample bibliography backs up this exposition, supplemented by numerous figures, tables, colour plates and maps. The description of the contemporaneous surface soils is supplemented by a review of the numerous paleosols with their paleogeographic significance.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The Soils of Israel is a most welcome comprehensive addition to our literature. It is profusely illustrated with numerous figures, tables, colour plates and maps which result from more than 40 years of research. I can whole-heartedly recommend it to teachers, research scientists, advanced students and professionals in soil science, and to others in related disciplines such as geography, environmental science, geobotany, geology and civil engineering who have an interest in the soils of countries with a Mediterranean climate." (J. Bech, European Journal of Soil Science, Vol. 59, 2008)
