    Description

    Many forestry and agricultural agencies and organizations worldwide have developed soil monitoring and quality standards and guidelines to ensure future sustainability of land management. These soil monitoring standards are typically developed in response to international initiatives such as the Montreal Process, the Helsinki Ministerial Conference,or in support of Best Management Practices program development and Code of Forest Practices regulations. This paper describes international (Australia, New Zealand, Canada,and the European Union) and U.S. efforts and perspectives on soil quality monitoring, and offers suggestions on how to use the existing USDA Forest Service standards and modify them for future relevance.
