The Soil Ecology Group

The aim of our research group is to advance understanding of the diversity and interactions of soil organisms with their environment, and how this affects above- and below-ground ecological processes. In particular, we are interested in the effects of human activity, for example soil management and climate change impacts, on soil organisms and the delivery of ecosystem services important for agricultural and silvicultural production. Such ecosystem services include biological control, soil carbon storage and nutrient cycling. We take a broad approach to research, utilising metagenomics, glasshouse experiments, and field studies.

Let's Talk About Soil - English from IASS Vimeo Channel on Vimeo.

This animated film tells the reality of soil resources around the world, covering the issues of degradation, urbanization, land grabbing and overexploitation; the film offers options to make the way we manage our soils more sustainable.<
