In agricultural areas, the use or disposal of animal wastes directly impacts the quality of the land and water. The handling of potential problems associated with the waste-ecosystem interactions requires cooperation among a combination of disciplines-from agronomy to sociology. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the issues, Animal Waste and the Land-Water Interface covers the major factors critical for total watershed management, including the hydrological, chemical, biological, physical, political, and socioeconomic aspects. National and international authors provide expert coverage of all of these factors, in a successful attempt to continue and expand the communication, cooperation, and coordination among groups.
