B&W Illustrations; This is a larger than trade sized booklet with illustrated covers and a stapled spine. The booklet is in Near Fine condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The text pages are clean and bright. This booklet helps homebuyers learn to check the type of soil before putting foundations down. "For soil resources, experience has shown that a natural system approach to classification, i. E. Grouping soils by their intrinsic property (soil morphology) , behaviour, or genesis, results in classes that can be interpreted for many diverse uses. Differing concepts of pedogenesis, and differences in the significance of morphological features to various land uses can affect the classification approach. Despite these differences, in a well-constructed system, classification criteria group similar concepts so that interpretations do not vary widely. This is in contrast to a technical system approach to soil classification, where soils are grouped according to their fitness for a specific use and their edaphic characteristics."
