Module 2: How Florida Soils Interact with Phosphorus
Lecture 1: Overview of Florida soils and their distribution
Provides an overview of Florida soil morphology, of Florida soil types and distribution, and of how soil morphology gives clues to P dynamics.

Lecture 2: P dynamics as related to soil morphology and composition I
Describes the morphological cues to processes affecting distribution of soil components, explains P-retaining components and their distributions, and discusses the value and limitations of soil taxonomy in predicting P loss risks.
