How Creatures of Mud and Dirt Shape Our WorldeBook - 2005
Annotation The soils of the Earth, whether underneath our feet or pressurised beneath tons of ocean water, hold life in abundance. A handful of garden dirt may harbour more species than the entire aboveground Amazon. A growing array of scientists is exploring life in soils and sediments, uncovering a living world literally alien to our own senses--and yet one whose integrity turns out to be crucial to life above ground.
