Soil and Global Change - The Multiple Impacts of Human Action Life in the Soil

    • Science

The list of how humans are causing trouble in the soil is pretty mind-blowing, kind of overwhelming. It’s connected to all that is central to our modern human societies - industrial agriculture, synthetic chemistry, city sprawl, global mobility and so on and on. In this episode, Matthias Rillig, Anja Krieger and their guests Maddy Thakur and Asmeret Asefaw Berhe explore the human impacts on soil and their cascading effects.
