    Soil is considered toxic when it contains contaminants that are harmful to humans or the environment. Soils can contain dangerous levels of lead and arsenic that come from various products leaching into the soil. Soil testing tools can help homeowners determine whether they have soil toxins. V.

    Homeowner reports also present soil test results in graphic and numerical form but in order to simplify the reports, soil test levels are ranked as either "sufficient" or "insufficient" and information pertaining to the Lime Buffer Capacity Index is omitted.

    The utility of laboratory toxicity tests can be increased by the use of protocols that emphasize the most sensitive procedures, such as life-cycle studies or tests with model ecosystems, and such tests should include several aquatic invertebrates from different levels in the food chain, exhibiting different responses to toxicants, plus other Cited by: Introduction to Environmental Soil Physics (D. Hillel, , Elsevier) Any basic soil physics book would be appropriate; this one is a suggestion of a fairly comprehensive text on soil physics. Another suggestion is Soil Physics by W.A. Jury and R.
