$a This volume of Advances in Agronomy reports science advances and independent scientific evidence to help address the global soil challenge. The research combines two scientific frameworks: the integrated, mechanistic study of Earth's Critical Zone, the thin surface layer of the planet from “treetop to bedrock” that supplies most life-sustaining resources, and the concept of soil functions as biophysical flows and transformations of mass, energy, and biodiversity to deliver multiple environmental goods and services. The research presented focuses on the mechanistic links between the development of the internal pore structure of soil and the rates of soil processes that define soil functions.
