Urban Soils: Properties and Management provides up-to-date information on the physical, chemical, biological and mineralogical characteristics of urban soils. The majority of the world’s population lives in cities and their associated developed areas, bringing attention to the need for sustainable city management. Urban soils are the base support system for green infrastructure, which is necessary for liveable city initiatives. Scientists face considerable challenges in this area as societal expectations now include healthy urban green infrastructure, protection of the public from environmental contaminants, and sustainable use of natural resources such as soils. Through this book, scientists will gain a better understanding of urban soil classification, management and reclamation in urban environments. Urban Soils: Properties and Management is accessible to those without extensive soils knowledge, as it covers the basics of urban soil conditions as well as the management of urban soils for natural and constructed green infrastructure.
