Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The JRC and the Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative (GSBI) publish the first-ever Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas that maps the soil biodiversity of the entire planet. This unique Atlas pays tribute to soil – the silent engine that keeps the planet alive – by providing a detailed analysis of soil organisms and the threats to soil biodiversity at global scale. The Atlas was launched by the JRC and GSBI at the 2nd UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi on 25 May 2016.
