Urban Soils: Properties and Management (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Urban Soils: Properties and Management provides up-to-date information on the physical, chemical, biological and mineralogical characteristics of urban soils. The majority of the world's population lives in cities and their associated developed areas, bringing attention to the need for sustainable city management. Urban soils are the base support system for green infrastructure, which is necessary for liveable city initiatives. Scientists face considerable challenges in this area as societal expectations now include healthy urban green infrastructure, protection of the public from environmental contaminants, and sustainable use of natural resources such as soils. Through this book, scientists will gain a better understanding of urban soil classification, management and reclamation in urban environments. Urban Soils: Properties and Management is accessible to those without extensive soils knowledge, as it covers the basics of urban soil conditions as well as the management of urban soils for natural and constructed green infrastructure.

Bryant Scharenbroch is an Assistant Professor at U. Wisconsin - Stevens Point and a Research Fellow of The Morton Arboretum. He studies the morphology, genesis and classification of urban soils. He is interested in the management of urban soils for ecosystem benefits and interactions with plants, water and air in urban landscapes. Prof. Scharenbroch is a former Chair of the Urban and Anthropogenic Soils Division of the Soils Science Society of America. He has B.S. degrees from U. Wisconsin - Stevens Point in Urban Forestry and Forest Management, and a M.S. in Plant Science from U. Idaho and a Ph.D. in Soil Science from U. Wisconsin - Madison. Susan Day is an Associate Professor at Virginia Tech who studies tree root-soil interactions and their role in urban ecosystem sustainability-particularly in terms of soil quality and stormwater mitigation. Her work with the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES (R)) shaped the soils standards now institutionalized by the U.S. Green Building Council and adopted by the U.S. federal government. Prof. Day has collaborated with designers, engineers, and policymakers and is a former Chair of the Urban and Anthropogenic Soils Division in the Soil Science Society of America. She holds a B.A. from Yale University, a M.S. from Cornell University, and a Ph. D. from Virginia Tech.
