State Factor Analysis

  • Hans Jenny
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 37)


How ecosystems and soils evolve in time, differ from each other, and vary from one landscape to another, and why, is explored by state factor analysis. (Pedagogically speaking, the reader may wish to scan this chapter for orientation, then acquaint himself or herself with material in succeeding chapters and return to this one for critical perusal.)
