Book: Enhancing Understanding and Quantification of Soil–Root Growth Interactions, Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling 4, 2013
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America.

 

Researchers must come together and leverage our understanding of the rhizosphere to maximize efficient, sustainable use of limited water and soil nutrient resources. Enhancing Understanding and Quantification of Soil–Root Growth Interactions takes on this challenge to solve society’s growing problems in the conservation of quality water and soil resources—from addressing the critical needs in nations who cannot afford costly fertilizers, to the global challenge of enhancing soil carbon storage to reduce climate change effects of elevated carbon dioxide. This book brings together scientists from different disciplines, worldwide, together to encourage synthesis of transdisciplinary knowledge and further research and developments in the area of root-soil interactions.
