Soils: Introducing the World Beneath Our Feet

Lancaster University

Overview

How often do you think about soil? Although soil provides us with food, helps manage our water supply, and supports the infrastructure of our civilizations, we rarely appreciate how integral it is to our lives.

Professor Carly Stevens is a lecturer on plant, soil, and ecosystem ecology at Lancaster University. Throughout this course, Stevens and her colleagues provide an extensive overview of the properties of soil, offer historical context for the importance of soil, and look into the potential danger in soil's future. Soil: Introducing the World Beneath our feet will teach you to be cognizant of the dire need humans have for soil so that we don't inadvertently squander it.
