    Abstract

    The extensive use of land resources for food production, fibre for construction, wood pulp for paper, removal for extractive industries, sealing for urban and industrial development and as a receiver (either deliberate or accidental) of polluting substances has wrought huge changes in the chemistry, structure and biology of soils, away from their natural state.
