The BayCEER Colloquium is an interdisciplinary platform for students, scientists and interested citizens: Usually lectures are held weekly (during the lecture period) in the field of ecology and environmental sciences, which can then be discussed in plenary and in a relaxed atmosphere during the post-colloquium. You are welcome to bring your own lunch (brown bag lunch).

Soil structure, water, and organic matter – responses to different land management systems

Soil structure, the spatial arrangement of solids and pores, determines a state of a soil which can be directly linked to various soil functions, such as water and carbon storage. In agricultural soils, the structure is shaped by the applied land management system (tillage system, crop rotation, fertilization) and land management changes can affect these soil functions on different time scales. For example, the accessibility of plant residues and organic amendments to the microorganisms through pores determines their mineralisation rates, and in consequence, the capacity of soil to store organic carbon. In addition, the feedbacks between plant growth and macro-fauna activity can change soil hydraulic properties and thus water dynamics in soils. However, these small-scale interactions between land management, soil biology, and soil structure are still difficult to quantify. X-ray computer tomography can be used to give us new insides into a small but complex world.
