220 Soil Change on the Human Time Scale

Oral Session
S05 Pedology
This is an appropriate follow-up to the 2008 invited symposium (Pedology, Soil Change and Management Effects on Soil Quality). The ideal soil change studies follow a holistic approach and integrate pedological, ecological, and agricultural principles. Such studies are needed to document the effects of soil change on current and future production capabilities as well as effects on soil and ecosystem services. A topical session will facilitate networking and information exchange among researchers with these common interests. The desired outcome is to advance the science of soil change and our understanding of how soils change. Both are needed to provide land managers and decisions makers with new information to protect and enhance the nation’s soil resources
