Soils are at the heart of healthy functioning terrestrial ecosystems and have an important role to play in maintaining biodiversity yet they are often overlooked or poorly understood by environmental practitioners. Opportunities to manage soils effectively in order to enhance biodiversity above and below ground can be missed.

This conference will increase our understanding of soil ecology, the ecosystem services benefits of soils and how the management and restoration of soils can achieve better outcomes for biodiversity. Finally delegates will hear how the concept of ‘Soil Reserves’ has been put forward as a means of raising society’s awareness of the importance of soils to effective conservation.

Keynote talk by Dr Helaina Black of the James Hutton Institute, President of the British Society of Soil Science.
