Humic Substances: Nature’s Most Versatile Materials contains a compilation of papers presented at the 2002 Humic Substances Seminar and will keep humic substances scientists up to date with recent research.
"The characterization [of humic substances] remains one of science's most intriguing challenges. It is clear from the collection of papers that humic substances make a measurable and important contribution to the geochemical mobility and cycling of elements. Technical production and editing of the text is excellent. The content of [the 11th biennial conference of the International Humic Substances Society meeting] was outstanding, and this volume provides a glimpse of the real progress being made in the understanding of humic substances." - Soil Science, volume 169, 8
