Peatlands of the western Guayana Highlands, Venezuela : properties and paleogeographic siginficance of peats by J. Alfred Zinck( )

28 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and German and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Guayana Highlands in northeastern tropical America, rising from lowland rain forests and savannas up to 3000 m elevation, are characterized by ancient tablelands called tepuis. The peatlands that developed on the tepuis constitute unique and fascinating ecosystems and are the focus of this volume, which starts with an overview of tropical and subtropical peats, followed by an introduction to the geo-ecological features of the Guayana region as a whole, with special emphasis on the diversity of the vegetation cover from lowlands to uplands to highlands. The core subject centers on the properties and dating of the peat deposits and the interpretation of the chronological record in terms of past environmental changes. The well illustrated book will appeal to a broad range of scientists interested in tropical highland peats, including quaternarists, soil scientists, geomorphologists, geographers, geologists, ecologists, botanists, hydrologists, conservationists, and land use planners
Geopedology : an integration of geomorphology and pedology for soil and landscape studies by J. Alfred Zinck( )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a proven approach for reliable mapping of soil-landscape relationships to derive information for policy, planning and management at scales ranging from local to regional. It presents the theoretical and conceptual framework of the geopedologic approach and a bulk of applied research showing its application and benefits for knowledge generation relevant to geohazard studies, land use conflict analysis, land use planning, land degradation assessment, and land suitability analysis. Soil is a vital resource for society at large and an important determinant of the economic status of nations. The intensification of natural disasters and the increased land use competition for food and energy have raised awareness of the relevant role the pedosphere plays in natural and anthropogenic environments. Recent papers and global initiatives show a renewed interest in soil research and its applications for improved planning and management of this fragile and finite resource

Ethnopedology in a worldwide perspective : an annotated bibliography by Narciso Barrera-Bassols( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethnopedological research covers a wide diversity of topics centered around four main issues: (1) the formalization of local soil and land knowledge into classification schemes, (2) the comparison of local and technical soil classifications, (3) the analysis of local land evaluation systems, and (4) the assessment of agro-ecological management practices. In the second part of the paper, the current status of ethnopedology in a worldwide perspective is assessed from a compilation of 895 references, with respect to the abundance, distribution and diversity of ethnopedological studies
