The role of soil biological communities in supporting soil structure and health
To study and quantify the contribution of soil biota to soil structural processes and multifunctionality and to test the resilience of soil biota to biodiversity loss, I am setting up a microcosm experiment and I am looking for a  ...

Unravelling natural organic matter with root exudates
Root exudates are extremely important in mobilizing nutrients and are increasingly seen as relevant to carbon sequestration in soils. They modify the biology and chemistry in the rhizosphere by several well known mechanisms. The a ...

Stimulating earthworm populations in horticulture – is that feasible?
Earthworms are important ecosystem engineers. They contribute to soil fertility, soil structure formation, and water cycling. Due to the often very intensive soil management in horticultural soils earthworm population density is o ...

Climate adaptation and mitigation potential of agroforestry systems
Agroforestry is increasingly recognised as a potential mitigation and adaptation strategy against climate change. Agroforestry is often argued to increase soil carbon, improve nutrient cycling and promote soil biodiversity. It i ...

Exploring how soil-forming factors influence microbial warming responses in New Zealand
New Zealand is a model system to study how microbial activities and other biogeochemical processes will respond climate change due to its diverse soils and climates over a short geographic distance. In this project, we will explor ...

Impact of solar parks on spatial distribution of SOM and vegetation dynamics
Introduction: Solar parks are a relatively new and rapidly expanding land use to produce renewable energy and meet CO2 reduction targets. However, their impact on soil quality of agricultural fields raises concern. Solar parks cau ...

Evaluation of different types of bio-based fertilizers and their effects on carbon and nutrient dynamics in two different soils – Colombia - thesis or research internship
The RUSTICA project (www.rusticaproject.eu) aims to validate technical solution to convert organic residues from the fruit and vegetable sector into novel bio-based fertiliser products that address the needs of modern (sustainable ...

Nitrous oxide emission from soils amended with crop residues
One of the measures to sequester carbon in the soil is leaving crop residues on the soil. However, possible trade-offs with enhanced emission of nitrous oxide (N2O) could occur due to addition of nitrogen into the soil. In additio ...

Root trait diversity in grassland communities enhance productivity and ecosystem services
Multispecies swards consisting of different grasses, forbs and legumes are a promising alternative to high yielding and high input perennial ryegrass monoculture used in pasture production. Recent research shows that low input bio ...

Studying the effect of land use intensity and land use changes on functional diversity of soil biota
Soil biota play a crucial role in the provision of ecosystem functions. A promising way to link the abundance of soil biota to these functions is by studying their functional diversity. Functional diversity describes the range of  ...
