WP3: Belowground biodiversity & carbon sequestration across spatial scales


  • Management practices in vineyard can impact soil biodiversity and related processes and services

  • Below ground biodiversity plays key roles in ecosystems and influence a large number of important ES including  nitrogen cycling, carbon cycling, plant protection and production.

  • Microbial parameters are useful in monitoring ecosystem response to management practice or environmental stress because of their key role in most ecosystem services.
