Soil Biology Group
The Soil Biology (SBL) group regards soil life as key to sustainable (agro)ecosystems. We study the role of soil organisms in element (carbon, nutrient) transformations in soils. Our research is embedded in three themes: fertile soils; soil functional biodiversity; and soils and climate change. We have state-of-the-art laboratories which facilitate this research, both engaging in developmental research through PhD, MSc and funded projects and requested routine analyses for external clients.
