284 Soil-Ecosystem Processes in Restoration of Drastically Disturbed Landscapes: I

Oral Session
S05 Pedology Drastically disturbed landscapes particularly landscapes affected by mineral extraction processes require knowledge of edaphic degradation and recovery processes in order for lands to be effectively restored. Such landscapes are utilized for a variety of purposes and restoration activities are often tailored to address the restoration of specific ecosystem services. This topic provides an opportunity for a variety of soil science and related disciplines to present expanded knowledge of soil-ecosystem interactions in these landscapes.
