230 Soils of Reclaimed Landscapes: Recycling, Renewing, and Reusing Depleted Environments: II

Poster Session
S05 Pedology

Soil characteristics of lands formerly used as agricultural, urban, and mined lands are distinct from those of pristine soils. In an effort to improve environmental quality, much effort is being expended on renewed stewardship of what may have previously become abandoned lands. As some of these landscapes are reclaimed and revert to more natural conditions or new forms of production, new pedologic characteristics develop, together with a resurgence of ecosystem services. This symposium will address these recycled landscapes from the perspective of multiple soil disciplines and provide an opportunity to discuss how we can get a second chance at natural resource conservation.
