Abstract This book explains how urban soils develop, change and erode. It describes their physical and chemical properties and focuses on the specific soil properties that can cause environmental concern and also affect engineering works. It also addresses contemporary issues such as green roofs, urban green space and the man-made urban soils that these may need to thrive in. It provides a concise introduction to all aspects of soils in urban environments and will be extremely useful to students in a wide range of disciplines from soil science and urban forestry and horticulture, to planning, engineering, construction and land remediation.
