Provides an overview of Florida soil morphology, of Florida soil types and distribution, and of how soil morphology gives clues to P dynamics.
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.
Explains phosphate bonding mechanisms, how soil components interact with P, P affinity of soil components, and how component distribution affects P dynamics.
Describes P transport in soil and how distribution of soil components in conjunction with drainage influences P transport.
Explains the nature of naturally-phosphatic soils and how the form of P makes a difference in its potential fate.
