    Soil organisms are considered drivers of soil ecosystem services (primary productivity, nutrient cycling, carbon cycling, water regulation) associated with sustainable agricultural production. Soil biodiversity was highlighted ...
  • Mite community composition across a European transect and its relationships to variation in other components of soil biodiversity 

    Dirilgen T; Arroyo J; Dimmer WJ; Faber J; Stone D; Martins da Silva P; Schmelz R; Griffiths BS; Francisco R; Creamer RE; Sousa JP; Bolger T; Carvalho F (2016)
    The sustainable use of soils requires the protection of soil biodiversity because of its importance in the delivery of ecosystems services. However, no effective indicator exists which would allow assessment of the current ...

    Griffiths BS; Rombke J; Schmelz R; Scheffczyk A; Faber J; Bloem J; Peres G; Cluzeau D; Chabbi A; Suhadolc M; Sousa P; Martins da Silva P; Carvalho F; Mendes S; Morais P; Francisco R; Pereira C; Bonkowski M; Geisen S; Bardgett R; de Vries F; Bolger T; Dirilgen T; Schmidt O; Winding A; Hendriksen N; Johansen A; Philippot L; Plassart P; Bru D; Thompson B; Griffiths R; Keith A; Rutgers M; Mulder C; Hannula E; Creamer R; Stone D; Bailey MJ (2016)
    Soils provide many ecosystem services that are ultimately dependent on the local diversity and belowground abundance of organisms. Soil biodiversity is affected negatively by many threats and there is a perceived policy ...
