This chapter applies ecological theory to examine long-term soil dynamics. It develops ideas about soil recovery from disturbance as a means to guide future investigations of soil resilience as humanity's demands on soil increase over the coming decades. The discussions cover soil disturbance, resilience, and recovery; soil organic matter dynamics; and soil nutrient cycling.

Keywords:   ecological theory, soil ecology, soil dynamics, soil disturbance, soil organic matter, soil nutrient cycling
