Thus, much of the time for advancement of pedology research has occurred within the 90-year longevity of Soil Science celebrated with this issue. Many of the major advances are related not to just one article, but usually, a group of articles on a particular subject. Certainly, there have been leaders in the field and these are noted in the articles reprinted here and references. The nine milestones selected a range from recognizing soils as natural bodies to the application of laboratory methods such as scanning electron microscope and energy dispersive X-ray. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
