Changes in land use alter the fluxes to or from the soil system and/or impose additional stresses on the system. The most significant land use changes affecting soils within the past few decades have been increases in conifer afforestation and agricultural intensification. Additional stresses on the soil system have been imposed by factors such as acid deposition, applications of sewage sludge to the land and increased human trampling in sensitive mountain environments. This paper will examine the impact of such recent human-induced changes on soils in Scotland and assess whether we have sufficient knowledge to predict the sensitivity of soil systems to further perturbations
