Via specific effects on soil organisms, plants can influence the soil community and this, in turn, can influence the growth of other plants that grow later in the same soil. In this VICI project we examine the impact of such soil-borne ‘legacy effects’ on plants and aboveground insects in natural ecosystems and study how soil legacies can be used to restore degraded ecosystems.
