"Southern African geomorphology provides a unique account of the varied physical landscapes of the subcontinent and the landforms which comprise them. It describes these landscapes systematically, and explains their evolution and development against a backdrop of recent trends and new developments within geomorphology. It aims to fill a niche with regard to understanding Earth surface processes and their products in a southern African context. It is an academic text, yet one which will satisfy the lay reader who wishes to learn more about the southern African landscape, and the processes responsible for it."--Back cover.

This textbook is aimed at the majority of students, who need to quickly acquire a concise overview of soil science. Many current soil science textbooks still cater for a traditional student market where students embark on three years study in a narrow discipline. The growth in modular degree schemes has meant that soil science is now often taught as self-standing unit as part of broad based degree program. Students pursuing this type of course are increasingly reluctant to purchase expensive textbooks that are too detailed and often assume a scientific background. For those opting to specialise in soil science there are a variety of good textbooks to choose from. This short informative guide, will be particularly useful for students who do not possess a traditional scientific background, such as those studying geography, environment science, ecology and agriculture. Only textbook to cater for introductory courses in soil science. Provides an affordable concise overview of soil science. Learning exercises and chapter summaries enhance usability. Annotated suggestions for further reading. Based on proven and successful modular course structure. Emphasis on readability and interactive learning. No scientific background assumed.
