Working together for forest soils
Holistic management practices, modelling & monitoring for European Forest Soils
HoliSoils tackles gaps in knowledge on forest soil processes and aims to harmonise available soil monitoring information to support decision making towards climate and sustainability goals. HoliSoils identifies and tests novel soil management practices aiming to mitigate climate change and sustain provision of various ecosystem services essential for human livelihoods and wellbeing.
Young scientists will have a dedicated session at EFI annual conference in Barcelona.
The first HoliSoils project meeting and General Assembly took place in Helsinki in mid May 2022. The project celebrated a year of activities, with scientific presentations from each of the work packages. These included:…
Forest soils are teeming with life and biodiversity. They enable the growth of trees, berry plants and mushrooms that are essential to human consumption and economy and contribute to mitigation of the climate change by storing carbon and consuming greenhouse gas methane.
