Preface This dictionary is intended to facilitate communication in agricultural and environmental sciences. Both of these broad sciences deal with the environment but in very different ways. People working in these areas need to be able to communicate with each other clearly and effectively. Too often, however, the tendency is to develop special terms and usages that are understood within a particular group but that fail to convey their unique meanings to persons outside the group. Roy Donahue was an educator and writer in the field of soil science and had broad interests in all fields of agriculture and environmental science. He taught for many years at Michigan State University and accepted long-term international assignments in India and Africa. He undertook this project to help bridge the gap that has often existed between the terminologies used in these two broad subject areas, as well as the gaps that often exist between scientists and practitioners in both areas. He spent approximately ten years compiling terms and definitions from many sources. His emphasis was on special and unique terms and usages, including unusual words and short phrases along with special usages of common words. Words and usages that were not included in standard dictionaries were of special interest to him as he compiled his material. Dr. Donahue asked me to complete the project. As a professor of agronomy at Iowa State University with a background in soil science and an emphasis on soil conservation, I, too, had worked abroad in Uruguay, Argentina, and Morocco. I was able to provide an additional viewpoint and the advantage of being an experienced computer user. I edited and revised Dr. Donahue's work, verifying the meanings by consulting various dictionaries, textbooks, other books, and online references, especially the compilation of hundreds of dictionaries compiled on the OneLook site. I made sure that all of the definitions were consistent with materials already published, but they were rewritten for a consistent style and to avoid plagiarism. In the process, I reviewed volumes of environmental and agricultural literature, expanded the material by adding thousands of entries, and designated the parts of speech and derivations for most of the words. It should be noted that the derivations are provided mainly to clarify the source and meaning of the words and do not constitute complete etymologies. Many of the definitions are not unique to agricultural and environmental sciences but are needed to show that the word or phrase might be used in ways other than its unique scientific meaning. Dr. Donahue's illustrations were mostly photographs and artwork from government sources. I used many of them and supplemented them with photographs, my own artwork, and clip art. All photographs and drawings not otherwise credited on the Figure Credits page are mine. Dr. Donahue initiated this project and his input into the work was considerable, but regrettably he did not live to see this dictionary published. The final form therefore became my responsibility. Users' comments and suggestions are welcome and will be taken into consideration for any future editions that may be undertaken. In spite of all the effort that went into this dictionary, there are certainly many more terms and usages that could be added. Such a project can never be regarded as final and complete, but the current form should be useful to many people. Frederick R. Troeh Ames, Iowa August 2002
