Summary


Context

The current global challenges such as population growth, climate change following increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, loss of biodiversity and land degradation, require the development of sustainable land management practices . In this context, preservation of soil quality is key, because soils are related to many ecosystem services and are underpinning many sustainable development goals. To develop management practices aiming at positive effects on soil a deep taking advantage of its chemical, physical and biological complexity is required.

Our objectives

We propose to use major ecosystem engineers to enhance soil organic matter (SOM) stabilisation and related soil ecosystem services. We suggest to use earthworms during co-composting with minerals to enhance carbon sequestration through enhancing organo-mineral interaction and to introduce earthworm communities into soils, which lost much of their belowground biodiversity.

Our approach

We investigate the traits of temperate and tropical earthworm species in order to understand their role in soil carbon dynamics. With this knowledge we use the most suitable species to develop ecological engineering applications.

  1. Merci de partager avec tout le monde le travail que vous effectuez avec les services écosystémiques. J'aimerais vous inviter à visiter notre stand 19 - Agrapower Australia, pour en savoir plus sur les avantages que les engrais de silicium ont pour la conservation de l'agriculture, de la santé des sols et des plantes et la séquestration du carbone. S'il vous plaît laissez un message pour nous si vous souhaitez rencontrer et parler plus! www.agripower.com.au
