  • Characteristic and potential sources of polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins and dibenzofurans in agriculture soils in Beijing, China

    Polychlorinated dibenzo‐p‐dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) were analyzed in 25 background and 80 agriculture soil samples collected from 21 sites in Beijing, China. The levels of PCDD/Fs in the north agriculture soils were low (0.15–0.58 ng I‐TEQ/kg), which were compatible with those of the background soils (0.091–0.35 ng I‐TEQ/kg). However, in the south agriculture soils, there was an ...

  • Compost science journal of advocacy and foresight

    SEVERAL months ago, I started on a journey through the pages of Compost Science, beginning with the Spring, 1960 inaugural issue. I was confident that I could whip through the articles and news items in the several hundred issues of the magazine between 1960 and 2009, and be prepared to write this article for BioCycle’s 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition. Granted, there were interruptions, ...
