Understanding soil systems, including their various physical, chemical, and biological interactions, is imperative for regaining the vitality of soil system under changing climatic conditions. This book will address the impact of changing climatic conditions on various beneficial interactions operational in soil systems and recommend suitable strategies for maintaining such interactions.
Climate Change and Soil Interactions enables agricultural, ecological, and environmental researchers to obtain up-to-date, state-of-the-art, and authoritative information regarding the impact of changing climatic conditions on various soil interactions and presents information vital to understanding the growing fields of biodiversity, sustainability, and climate change.
- Addresses several sustainable development goals proposed by the UN as part of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development- Presents a wide variety of relevant information in a unique style corroborated with factual cases, colour images, and case studies from across the globe- Recommends suitable strategies for maintaining soil system interactions under changing climatic conditions

Marcin Pietrzykowski is a professor in forestry, forest ecology, and forest land reclamation at the Department of Forest Ecology and Reclamation at the Agricultural University in Krakow, Poland. His principal research focuses on the forestry, forest ecology, and forest land reclamation, especially on mine soil including vegetation relationships, trees species response and to reclaimed mine site conditions, nutrient cycling, carbon sequestration, site classification, and forest management on reclaimed mine sites. In 2013, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Virginia, United States. He was awarded the European Award for Sustainable Land Use - CULTURA Prize 2015 by Alfred Toepfer Foundation. He is a member in the American Society of Mining and Reclamation, Society of Ecological Restoration, and the Polish Society of Soil Science. He is an author and co-author of over 150 scientific papers and has patented several inventions for biostabilazation methods of post-industrial sites.
