South West England Section Conference 2017

Life in Earth:  Soils, the Forgotten Science in Ecology

held in association with South West Soils Discussion Group

06 December 2017, Okehampton

This conference, organised jointly with the British Society of Soil Society (BSSS) South West Soils Discussion Group, was held at the prestigious North Wyke Rothamsted Research site. Seventy delegates gathered to hear about the importance of soils and their structure to ecologists when planning and implementing schemes on the ground and when addressing problems that sometimes arise. We were also treated to a tour of the labs and farm site at this world-leading, non-profit research centre that focuses on strategic agricultural and soil sciences.
