  • Ecological network analysis reveals the inter-connection between soil biodiversity and ecosystem function as affected by land use across Europe 

    Creamer RE; Hannula SE; Van Leeuwen JP; Stone D; Rutgers M; Schmelz RM; de Ruiter PC; Bohse Hendriksen N; Bolger T; Bouffaud ML; Buee M; Carvalho F; Costa D; Dirilgen T; Francisco R; Griffiths BS; Griffiths R; Martin F; Martins da Silva P; Mendes S; Morais PV; Pereira C; Philippot L; Plassart P; Redecker D; Rombke J; Sousa JP; Wouterse M; Lemanceau P (2016)
    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 ...
  • The nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide increases mineralization-immobilization turnover in slurry-amended grassland soil 

    Ernfors M; Brennan FP; Richards KG; McGeough KL; Griffiths BS; Laughlin RJ; Watson CJ; Philippot L; Grant J; Minet EP; Moynihan E; Muller C (2014)
    Nitrification inhibitors are used in agriculture for the purpose of decreasing nitrogen (N) losses, by limiting the microbially mediated oxidation of ammonium (NH4 +) to nitrate (NO3 −). Successful inhibition of ...
  • Recently identified microbial guild mediates soil N2O sink capacity 

    Jones CM; Spor A; Brennan FP; Breuil M-C; Bru D; Lemanceau P; Griffiths BS; Hallin S; Philippot L (2014)
    Nitrous oxide (N2O) is the predominant ozone-depleting substance and contributes approximately 6% to overall global warming1,2. Terrestrial ecosystems account for nearly 70% of total global N2O atmospheric loading, of ...
  • Selecting cost effective and policy-relevant biological indicators for European monitoring of soil biodiversity and ecosystem function 

    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 ...
  • Stability and ecosystem resilience, a below-ground perspective 

    Griffiths BS; Philippot L (2015)
    Renewed interest in soil stability in terms of resistance and resilience seems to have been sparked by two processes, the development of studies concerned with climatic or environmental change and the continuing exploration ...
