scientists and, indeed, to professionals in many other fields The first chapter is a comprehensive review on soil health and sustainability Subjects that are covered include: an historical perspective on soil health, soil health and its relationship to human health and agricultural sustainability, ways to assess soil quality and health, and integration of soil health concepts into farm management The second chapter is a state-of-the-art treatise on the use of plants to remediate soils contaminated with organic chemicals Topics are presented on concepts of phytoremediation, plants as remediation structures for organic pollutants, effects of plant-associated microflora on phytoremediation, and overall advances in phytoremediation research The third chapter discusses innovative aspects of biological control of weeds with plant pathogens and microbial pesticides Discussions are included on techniques and strategies, synergisms that can affect biological weed control effectiveness, and environmental impacts of nonchemical approaches The effect of plant residues, animal manures, and organic acids on the phosphorus chemistry of aerobic and anaerobic soils is fully discussed in in the fourth chapter Chapter five is a review on advances in drought tolerance in plants Physiological and molecular biological aspects of water use efficiency are provided as well as the current status of research on drought and desiccation tolerance and water deficits and reproduction Chapter six deals with the aflatoxin problem in corn grain Background on the topic, ways to identify aflatoxins, conditions affecting their accumulation, and management regimes and long-term solutions are included I appreciate the excellent contributions of the authors DONALD L SPARKS ix 76
