Feb. 27 Canadian Prairie Soils - Manitoba - Bob Eilers - Hydropedolgist
Soils, the "skin" of the Earth, are perhaps the most sensitive and fragile of our mineral resources at the interface of rocks and atmosphere. We know that soils are not all the same. So how did our soils originate and develop to become a rich and productive environment for wildlife, forests and agriculture? Bob will talk about some of the major factors and processes that produced our prairie soils. He will also talk about the "health" of our soils - some of the processes that are degrading the quantity, quality and productivity of our prairie soils, and the land use changes that have impacted our soil landscapes. To finish, he will answer the question, "So, how are we doing now?"
