About this book

Soil degradation is real and global, even if the evidence is not so easy to glean. Degradation poses comparable risks to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and nonhuman animal extinctions. Few have noticed soil degradation as the problem it has become, except most indigenous peoples in their struggles for survival.

Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro is an Associate Professor of Geography at SUNY New Paltz, where he works, presents, and writes on soil degradation. He received a MSc degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Physical Geography specialising in soils, and a PhD in Geography at Rutgers University (2000), focusing on the impact of social processes on soil use and quality.
