Soil: The Matrix — We’ll go from micro to macro-texture, structure, individual ingredients (including trace elements, micronutrients), pH, etc.; the living components and the mutable components (water and air, for example); the soil as an organism, with a special emphasis on the introduction of the great translators and coordinators-the fungi; the landscape-soil stability and erosion and why we need to consider these factors
