Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas

This fully illustrated publication details what we presently know about life the soil and the complex ecosystem within which life is sustained. Of course, and here is the rub, when the soil is described as being a very complex living ecosystem, the information flies in the face of Industrial Agriculture. Modern farmers, with the help of their agents, have all but declared war on soil life by the use of petrochemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Soil Microorganisms and Higher Plants

Krasil'nikov found ways to improve plant growth and crop yields with special composts and microbial ferments of the sort that could be produced by the farmer in an old barrel. All these "primitive" solutions are based on a very high-level understanding of soil microbes and how crop species interact with each other via long-lasting soil residues (root exudates), and how plants and microbes interact with each other.

Soil and Sense

Graham wrote before the discoveries of micorhizzal associations and production of phytamins by soil bacteria. But he still did a very good job of explaining the essences of sustainable holistic farming to the general public.

Trees and Toadstools

A foundation work of the Organic Farming and Gardening movement. It discusses the relationships between tree roots and fungi. Rayner's work formed the basis of the organicist contention that supporting a complete and healthy population of soil microlife is essential to plant health.
