Symposium on Above- and Below-Ground Biodiversity for Sustainable Ecosystems
Biodiversity loss has become a global concern as increasing evidence highlights the importance of diverse species interactions as the main drivers of the ecosystem services on which society depends. This symposium focuses on the importance of above and belowground biodiversity for ecosystem functioning, multifunctionality and sustainability. Various talks will highlight the importance of biodiversity for agro-ecosystem functioning as this symposium is linked to the Biodiversa research project “Agricultural Diversification: Digging Deeper” investigating the importance of agricultural crop diversification.
Themes covered include soil biodiversity, above-ground biodiversity, nutrient cycling, ecosystem multifunctionality, climate change, carbon sequestration and agricultural sustainability.
