Description - Under Ground by Yvonne Baskin
The soils of the Earth, whether underneath our feet or pressurised beneath tons of ocean water, hold life in abundance. A handful of garden dirt may
harbour more species than the entire aboveground Amazon. A growing array of scientists is exploring life in soils and sediments, uncovering a living world
literally alien to our own senses--and yet one whose integrity turns out to be crucial to life above ground.
