Résumé

Soil Erosion and Conservation provides a comprehensive treatment of the processes of soil erosion, the methods that can be used for their control, and the issues involved in designing and implementing soil conservation programmes. Features include : new material on gully erosion, tillage practices, erosion risk assessment, use of erosion models, incentives for farmers and land users, and community approaches to erosion control ; updated sections on the mechanics of wind erosion, soil erodibility, use of vegetation in erosion control, traditional soil conservation measures, socio-economic issues and the role of government ; descriptions of the methods used to assess the risk of erosion and predict rates of soil loss ; outlines of the social, economic, political and institutional constraints on implementing soil protection measures ; coverage of erosion and its control for agriculture, grazing, forestry, mining land, road banks, pipeline corridors and recreation ; and worldwide coverage of the success and failure of erosion control using material from Europe, Africa, Australia, America and Asia.
The third edition of this internationally recognized textbook will be invaluable to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students studying soil conservation or soil erosion in earth science, environmental science and physical geography departments.
