We are testing how plant/crop species and growth conditions influence soil biodiversity, and how these changes in soil biodiversity feed back to soil ecosystem processes and the delivery of soil ecosystem services. We examine how differences in soil community composition, as a result of bio-based economy production processes, influence plant performance, soil biodiversity, ecosystem processes and ecosystem services in terrestrial soils. We also test applications of the combined plant-soil interaction and remote sensing approach to plant-soil systems with plant species to be grown as bio-based economy crops.
