SOILCLIM, Managing soil biodiversity and ecosystem services in agroecosystems across Europe under climate change

Project: Research


Major climate change models predict changing rainfall patterns, with reduced summer rain. SOILCLIM will study the effects of reduced rainfall on soil biodiversity and ecosystem services over a European transect of climatic conditions and soil properties and under different long-term fertilization strategies.
