I. Listening Quiz.

The central importance of soil for the functioning of terrestrial systems is increasingly
recognized. Critically relevant for water quality, climate control, nutrient cycling and biodiversity, soil
provides more functions than just the basis for agricultural production. Nowadays, soil is increasingly
under pressure as a limited resource for the production of food, energy and raw materials. This has led
to an increasing demand for concepts assessing soil functions so that they can be adequately considered
in decision making aimed at sustainable soil management. The various soil science disciplines have
progressively developed highly sophisticated methods to explore the multitude of physical, chemical
and biological processes in soil.
