About The Book

Soil is a basic vital component of agriculture. This natural resource has not been fully explored nor exploited with respect to its live components, their enormous biochemical activities and soil processes. The huge hidden world present in soil has yet remained a great mystery although several folds of diversity, versatility, function and biochemical activities of its various components have been explored. These revelations have helped the mankind in improving its standard of living and cultivation practices. 
Soil microbiology involves wide ranging multidisciplinary fields and in this book information on the fundamental and applied aspects of soil microbiology have been covered in simple comprehensive manner. The book has primarily been aimed at to adequately introduce Soil Microbiology and Biochemistry with thrust on understanding the various microbial processes occurring in soil. The book is expected to be useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and researchers dealing with agriculture, horticulture and forestry in general and agricultural microbiology, soil science and environmental sciences in particular.
