You may wish to check out Vol. 7, No. 1-2 of American Journal of Alternative 
Agriculture (1992), which devoted a double issue to the subject of soil 
quality.  This is closely related to what you inquired about.  The issue has 
10 articles by a distinguished international panel of authors, and addresses 
most aspects of the topic, including soil organisms (both microorganisms and 
invertebrates), physical and chemical soil characteristics, management 
effects, and so forth.

P.S. In the interest of full disclosure in this ethics-conscious era, to 
avoid apperanace of conflict-of-interest I should mention that I am technical 
editor of the journal that published that exhaustive, definitive and 
exceptionally well-done treatment of the subject.
