    Johnson and colleagues (), in a paper presented at a Symposium on Soil Quality Standards hosted by the Soil Science Society of America in October suggested that soil quality should be defined in terms of the function soils play in the environment and defined soil function as ''the potential utility of soils in landscapes resulting from.

    Although these high-quality soils may release large amounts of nitrate and phosphate to the environment, there is yet no reliable agro-environmental indicator for managing N and P compared to the adjacent mineral and organic soils. Our objective was to quantify the N mineralization and P environmental risks of mucky mineral soils. Soil is a vital natural resource, whose quality is inextricably linked to the human quality of life. Processes that affect the soil resource base impact the quality of life, either directly by affecting food and fibre production or indirectly by affecting other natural resources such as .

Themes addressed by the authors include approaches to defining and assessing soil quality relationships between various soil properties and soil quality and land-use sustainability, models for characterizing soil quality, and defining biological criteria for evaluating the effects of management practices on soil quality.

Typically, the concept of soil quality is considered to transcend the productivity of soils (Larson and Pierce,Parr et al., ) to explicitly include the interactions between humans and soil, and to encompass ecosystem sustainability as the basis for the benefits that humans derive from soils as well as the intrinsic values of soil as being irreplaceable and unique (Carter et al., ).Cited by: The ensuing publication (=-=Doran et al.

Soil quality and sustainability evaluation is a fundamental concept bridging between the utilization and protection aspects of soil-use planning.

A framework and definitions for evaluating the quality and sustainable use of soil resources is developed for applications in the European Union in the support of the Thematic Strategy for Soil.

Abstract. The deterioration of soil quality owing to human activities results in adverse effects on the soil ecosystem. This study developed a systematic method to quantitatively evaluate soil quality based on physical, chemical, biological, and ecotoxicological indicators and proposed the soil quality assessment and management by: 1.Soil is a vital natural source and, at the same time, has an economic and eco-social potential.

It allows the production of food and raw materials, recycles waste, creates forest-agricultural land, filters and retains water, allows the usage and valorisation of sun energy, ensures the cycle and balance of substances in nature, maintains diversity of plant and animal by: 4.The dynamics of soil quality as a measure of sustainable management.
