Chinese Soil Science: An important growing contribution of international relevance - Virtual Issue

This BSSS journals’ virtual issue includes papers in European Journal of Soil Science and Soil Use and Management, and can be accessed without cost online. The virtual issue is a collection of papers authored by Chinese soil scientists which have been published in these journals and which give a flavour of the breadth and types of research. The twenty papers include the topics: 1) carbon and organic matter; 2) physical and chemical processes, functions and management; 3) biological interactions; 4) nutrient management and 5) soil degradation and impact of land management.
