Science of Soil

Joel Brown, National Ecological Site Team Leader, recently worked with the New Mexico State University Soil and Environmental Science Department and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture through a Hispanic Serving Institution grant to develop a series of videos.  The videos are intended to attract and retain undergraduate students to soil science.  The five videos can be found at http://scienceofsoil.org/
