Pressestimmen

"All good gardeners know healthy plants start with healthy soil. But why? And how? In "Teaming with Microbes" Lowenfels and Lewis reveal the new research in the most practical and accessible way." --Kym Pokorny "The Oregonian "

If you want to get a good understanding of how soils really work, and learn how to really feed your soil (and thus, your plants), there is a great book that explains it all very well, and also explains how to make really good compost and compost tea. It is concise and uses nonscientific terminology. The book isTeaming With Microbes; A Gardener's Guide To The Soil Food Webby Jeff Lowenfels and Wayne Lewis. "

The information in this book is eye-opening and consistently entertaining. "

This very well illustrated hardback is a scientific view of many different kinds of soil microbes which include bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, nematodes and many others. "

"Sure, it's a gardening book, but it has all the drama and suspense of an extraterrestrial thriller. A cast of characters without eyeballs or backbones. Battle scenes with bizarre creatures devouring one another. Only this book is about as terrestrial as it gets."
Debra McKinney, "Anchorage Daily News," September 14, 2006"

Kurzbeschreibung

Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life — not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of artificial substances, many of them toxic to humans as well as other forms of life. But there is an alternative to this vicious circle: to garden in a way that strengthens, rather than destroys, the soil food web — the complex world of soil-dwelling organisms whose interactions create a nurturing environment for plants. By eschewing jargon and overly technical language, the authors make the benefits of cultivating the soil food web available to a wide audience, from devotees of organic gardening techniques to weekend gardeners who simply want to grow healthy, vigorous plants without resorting to chemicals.

Nach der Lektüre dieses wunderbaren Werkes ist mir klar geworden, das selbst langjährig erfahrene Gärtner hier noch etwas lernen können. Wie bringe ich den Urzustand mikrobiellen Lebens in meinen eigenen Garten zurück? In diesem Buch sind die Antworten. Hier mit neuesten Erkenntnissen aus der Mikrobiologie fortgesetzt, was Rudolf Steiner einst begann. Biologischer Landbau hoch effizient und doch zeitsparend.

Äußerst lohnende Lektüre, wenn man sich für die Zusammenhänge und vor allem die Auswirkungen und Bedeutung des Bodenlebens auf und für Pflanzen interessiert.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Teaming with microbes, and industry? 25. März 2011
Von Forest7 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed the beginning of Teaming with Microbes, but as I went on through it, I began to be uncomfortable with some of its tone. The authors seemed to be wanting to put their attachment to non-organic industrial lawn and garden products behind them, but they also seem to be doing advance work for a new bio-tech industry, rather than just proposing to work "with" the soil life in an organic way.

They relate [p.69] that one of them wrote a weekly gardening column for 30 years and never once mentioned mycorrhiza "out of sheer ignorance." On the same page they write, that it was only in the 1990's that the term mycorrhiza started to "creep into the agricultural industry's lexicon, much less the home gardener's." Most organic gardeners are aware that it is with home gardeners and "soil pioneers" progress is made in soil science, and not in an entrenched industry.

On p. 125, with the section "a quick look forward," they write, "Given the advancing scientific techniques, the high degree of interest in the subject, and the human as well as the monetary implications of usable bio-products, it is certain more will be taken up - more and more often - as additional tools for restoration and maintenance." In other words, more industry involvement.

Further, on page 126, the authors disclose their wish for the bio-tech development of "an endophytic fungi that rids the lawn of dandelions." The development of such a fungi that kills dandelions could be an ecological disaster. Besides the value of dandelions as a food source for many nations outside of the U.S., dandelions are a nitrogen fixing soil improving plant. Then too, did the authors consider that the bio-tech created endophytic fungi might adapt to also kill other root vegetables, such as sugar beets, and carrots? And by what means could such a fungi be kept from spreading outside the neighbor's lawn.

Again, it seems to me that although the sub-title of Teaming with Microbes is "The Organic Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web," the authors do not have the understanding of what organic gardening really is.

I'm going to return my book, and find another better one to understand soil dynamics and maintenance.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Should have revised more 12. Mai 2011
Von CelticNatureBoy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The first part of the book is pretty good. But then it comes completely off the rails in the second part. The author admits that mycorrhizal fungus is new to him. Adding a chapter on the subject for this latest revision was insufficient. The facts about mycorrhizal fungus means his theories about plant succession and bacterial vs fungal soil is completely wrong. Some vegetables are very dependant on mycorrhizal fungus. He should have completely rewritten part two. Example link:[...]
I agree that people should not till in the spring just before planting. But tilling in the late fall and working in organic matter and then planting a mycorrhizal cover crop will renew the fungus and achieve superior results. Buy this book for the first part and then ignore the second part.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Permaculture + Teaming with Microbes = Awesome 4. Mai 2011
Von web design_guru - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Such a paradigm shift! I had started out learning about organic gardening, then began learning about Gaia's Garden, Second Edition: A Guide To Home-Scale Permaculture and recently found Teaming with Microbes. I will never think about gardening or the earth the same way again. Dandelions = a calcium deficiency in your lawn? I used to think they were just lawn weeds who's leaves could be purchased at health food stores for a high price as a foodie delicacy. Love. Love. Love this book. It teaches you, in a very easy to understand way, how the soil food web works and what you can do to naturally improve your soil and crops/plants for sustainable and efficient growth. Now that's a gardening book. Brilliant. 5 stars!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This will change the way you manage your garden 29. Mai 2012
Von Ronald R. Humphrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is written in such a way that the average gardener can understand the fairly recent scientific research discoveries regarding the world of activity taking place in their soil. This explains why some things that were considered good gardening practices in the past actually inhibit the natural processes of healthy plant growth. Understanding the biology of the soil, you can implement low/no cost processes to greatly improve the life of it.

Very interesting reading even if you are not a gardener.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it. LOVED it. Plus, learned many things I hadn't known. 20. Dezember 2011
Von Diane Miessler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a long time organic gardener, I thought I had things pretty well figured out - compost, no chemicals, mulch. But this book (which, surprisingly, I was unable to put down) opened my eyes to the world of soil microbiology, and in a fascinating, often funny style. I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't realize the best thing about compost is not the nutrients it contains, but the germs. And that disturbing soils kills mycorrhizae (something I'd just been reading about in Paul Stamets' books on fungi).
The authors have arrived at the perfect mix of science and readability - this book fed my hunger for solid science, AND was fun to read. It's my go-to book on soil microbes. Get it, and keep it next to the dictionary on your Important Books Shelf.
