Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few decades, the notion of soil health and its relevance to the environment has been increasingly documented. Though this is so, despite the intuitive understanding of soil health through its connection with human health, its quantitative definition is still ill defined. This Special Issue seeks scientific contributions that provide opportunities for the development of soil management theories and practices that focus on the resilience of both natural and agricultural ecosystems to changes in land use, climate, and other human-induced activities. These could be investigations into physical, chemical, or biological soil processes and properties contributing to soil health and resilience, or case studies that show the impacts of policy and land management on human–landscape interactions, thus emphasizing the natural value of soils their diversity, and their broader contribution to society.
