Soil Science is the study of the soil in all its ramified manifestation and facets: as a central link in the biosphere, as a medium for the production of agricultural commodities, and as a raw material for industry and construction. As such, it shares interest with geology, sedimentology, terrestrial ecology and geobotany as well as applied sciences as agronomy and engineering. Because of its varied interest and concerns, soil science itself is commonly divided into several subdivisions, including pedology (soil formation and classification), soil chemistry, soil mineralogy, soil biology, soil fertility, soil mechanics and soil physics.
