  • Considers the relationship between human civilisation and soil, past and present
  • Describes the fundamental role of soil in climate change mitigation, food security, water quality and the restoration of biodiversity
  • Discusses the impact of widespread soil degradation, and explains why future sustainable management of soils is key to human well being, even for an increasingly urban human population
