Biological soil quality from biomass to biodiversity - importance and resilience to management stress and disturbance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Various aspects of the soil biota react sensitively to changes in the environment, including agricultural management. Changes in soil biodiversity cannot easily observed directly (measured in terms of community structure of microbes and nematodes, giving early warnings of long-term changes in organic matter, nutrient status and soil structure)
