Canada: Provinces and territories. Canada consists of 10 provinces and three territories that vary greatly in size. A combination of physical barriers and a scattered population has led to a strong sense of regionalism in Canada, and popular regional terms often overlap.

The Atlantic Provinces include Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia. The southern regions within this ecozone have had their forests cleared out due to urbanization and lumbering and are less dense in terms of natural vegetation.

The lowlands tend to be much better suited towards agricultural purposes, which is why about 9% of the Atlantic Maritime is farmland.

The food production potential of the world is decreasing every day. Ønce calculated from various data that we are losing at least 10 ha of arable land each minute (five because of soil erosion, three because of soil salinization, one because of non-agricultural use and one because of soil degradation).Cited by: The Amazon Book Review Author interviews, book reviews, editors' picks, and more.

Agricultural Nutrient Management and Environmental Quality Position of the Soil Science Society of America1 The degradation of water, air, and soil quality by nutrients originating from agriculture is an international environmental issue.

In the U.S., public concerns about ground and surface water contamination by nutrients. With the challenge that agricultural systems will face during the next 50 and years of increasing productivity to feed a large and growing population that is placing greater demands on the earth’s resources, there will be a need for policies that conserve agricultural productivity across the world’s key agroecoregions (Delgado et al.

The Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut are covered with the Canadian Shield, and rocky outcrops, sub Arctic forest soils, and. Soil management is important, both directly and indirectly, to crop productivity, environmental sustainability, and human health.

Because of the projected increase in world population, and the consequent necessity for the intensification of food production, the management of soils will become a pressing issue in the coming years.

Since humans worldwide obtain more than % of their food (calories) from the land and less than % from the oceans and aquatic ecosystems, preserving cropland and maintaining soil fertility should be of the highest importance to human welfare.
