Description

The research in the research group Soil Ecology Group is about interactions between soil organisms, the responses of soil organisms to the environment, the distribution of the organisms, and the impact of the environment on populations and communities parameters (also anthropogenic ones).

Research

The aim of our research 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.
