Soil Ecology and the Planetary Boundaries

Date: 24 January 2016 - 28 January 2016
Location: Wageningen University

The rapidly growing world population makes us facing planetary boundaries for the first time in human existence. Soils play a crucial role in producing food, feed, fibres, and bioenergy. Land-use intensification causes loss of soil biodiversity, whereas the need for increased agricultural land decreases natural areas and the soils that support them. How can we deal with these problems and what role might soil ecology play? Should we adapt, should we mitigate, or are there other ways of dealing with these global changes? This is the theme for the 6th edition of the international PhD course on Soil Ecology.
