|Title||Australian Soil and Land Survey Field Handbook|
|Abstract||The Australian Soil and Land Survey Field Handbook specifies methods, standards and terminology used in soil and land surveys. It has been widely used throughout Australia, providing one reference set of definitions for the characterization of landform, vegetation, land surface, soil and substrate.
The handbook advocates that a comprehensive suite of land and soil attributes be recorded in a uniform manner. This approach is held to be more useful than the allocation of land or soil to preconceived types or classes.
The third edition contains revised chapters on location and vegetation as well as some new landform elements.
