What is the significance of soil for life on earth?

The value of soil in nature can be divided depending on its functions, the main of which are as follows:
• Concentration of energy reserves due to the provision of vital processes of plants and their implementation of photosynthesis (and hence the formation of many minerals).
• Creation of interaction between small and large cycles of substances – biological and geological.
• Regulation of the main processes in the biosphere – regulation of the productivity of living organisms and their density on the planet’s surface.
• Participation in the interconnected process of adjusting atmospheric and hydrospheric compositions.
• Ensuring normal vital processes of terrestrial organisms.
• Environmental role – participation in the functionality of the ecosystem and as an integral part of the biogeocenosis.
• An important role in the complex mechanisms of functioning and regulation of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and ethnosphere.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
