Validation of Earthwatch SoilHealthWatch
Earthwatch Europe is an environmental NGO and we support communities and organisations to build knowledge, create connections and motivate action, often through the use of citizen science. Earthwatch uses citizen science, activ ...

The environmental and economic impacts of waste recycling on cropland C balance
Introduction: Waste recycling could be environmentally friendly practice to manage carbon (C) sequestration in arable farming. It has become a hot research topic recently because the promotion of circular agriculture and the need  ...

Busy beavers capture carbon
Environmental scientists have proposed drawing carbon out of the air and burying it to reduce greenhouse gasses and the impact of climate change. Maybe we can take some tips from nature’s own eco-engineers – beavers – which  ...

Disentangling the role of earthworms in cycling soil phosphorus using an isotopic approach
Earthworms play a key role in the soil nutrient cycling and thus participate in maintaining soil fertility. It is widely recognized that the phosphorus availability is higher in earthworm affected soil compared with the surroundin ...

Investigating the effect of an earthworm-processed rock on carbon and heavy metals dynamics in grasslands
Enhanced Silicate Weathering has been proposed as a new technology to capture atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in the form of inorganic carbon (IC). This technology relies on the natural process of mineral weathering and consists  ...

Effect of viruses on soil biogeochemical functions
Soil microorganisms play key roles in carbon cycling, plant nutrition, and greenhouse gas production (N2O and CH4). Viruses, by increasing microbial death rates, could strongly affect these processes. Viruses that infect bacteria  ...

Effects of fertilizer amendments and earthworm abundance on N2O and CO2 emissions from peat soils
Peat meadow soils in The Netherlands are of interest to different parties for divergent reasons. Livestock farmers benefit from relatively low groundwater tables, which make the soil stable enough grazing and equipment access. On  ...

How do moisture conditions affect the biological processes involved in peat decomposition?
It is well known that drainage of peat soils leads to decomposition of the organic matter in these carbon rich soils. This problem is increasingly being recognized recently, as is apparent from the goal in the Dutch climate agreem ...

Biological soil quality indicators for agricultural management and environmental impact
Soil quality indicators are important tools for assessing the state of agricultural soils as affected by management practices (e.g. tillage, farming system) or environmental impact (e.g. climate change ). The knowledge generated b ...
