It focuses on giving a detailed description of the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil and their geomorphological forms, as well as the geological characteristics of parent material. An integrative approach is used to study the interaction between climate, vegetation and geology in soil formation. Special attention is paid to human-induced soil degradation due to the erosion and contamination of soils in Serbia. The book includes a harmonization of national soil classification systems, with the FAO, WBR and ESD systemsSummary: Soil research history -- Ecological and economical importance of soil -- Aims of the book.-Climate -- Geographic position of Serbia -- Latitudinal and altitudinal variability of temperature and precipitations -- Main climate types in Serbia -- Geology (parent material) -- Geomorphology with geomorphological maps -- Vegetation -- Forest ecosystems -- Natural and anthropogenic meadows -- Serpentine vegetation -- Halophytic vegetation -- Chasmophytic vegetation -- Soil -- Major soil types with maps of soil distribution -- Soil classification -- Harmonization of national and FAO classification of Serbian soils -- Soil management (Land Use and Vegetation, Crops, Human influence) -- Irrigation -- Fertilization -- Anthropogenic degradation of soils -- Driving forces of soil degradation -- Soil contamination -- Land use in Serbia -- Erosion -- Wind erosion -- Fluvial erosion -- Salinization -- Soil protection and remediation -- Legal framework -- Main projects of soil remediation -- Future soil issuesPPN: PPN: 1658176391Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-EES
