Canadian-made soil science textbook now available

November 15, 2023  By Fruit & Vegetable

The Canadian Society of Soil Science has released a textbook titled Digging into Canadian Soils: An Introduction to Soil Science.

Written entirely by members of the Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS), the book introduces the core disciplines of soil science, as well as the concepts and vocabulary needed by students just beginning their soil science journey. The textbook provides supplementary materials that are specific to regions in Canada or may be of specific interest beyond what might be considered introductory soil science material.

Importantly, the textbook is also intended to introduce students to the Canadian System of Soil Classification by providing examples from across the length and breadth of the world’s second-largest country, and to the Canadian Society of Soil Science, whose members share a common passion for soil science and are keen to share and instill this passion with students across Canada.
