The authors of Fundamentals of Soil Ecology have agreed to revise and expand their book, which was rather short in its first edition. Planned addition of several laboratory exercises, new topics, updated references, and expanded coverage of soil macrofauna will increase the market for this successful volume. Paul Hendrix, a colleague of the authors at Univ. Georgia, will join in the development of this new edition.

In Big Ecology, David C. Coleman documents his historically fruitful ecological collaborations in the early years of studying large ecosystems in the United States. As Coleman explains, the concept of the ecosystem—a local biological community and its interactions with its environment—has given rise to many institutions and research programs, like the National Science Foundation’s program for Long Term Ecological Research. Coleman’s insider account of this important and fascinating trend toward big science takes us from the

Introducing the first integrated coverage of sedimentary and residual soil engineering Despite its prevalence in under-developed parts of the United States and most tropical and sub-tropical countries, residual soil is often characterized as a mere extension of conventional soil mechanics in many textbooks. Now, with the rapid growth of construction in these regions, it is essential to gain a fuller understanding of residual soils and their properties—one that's based on an integrated approach to the study of residual and
