The course describes the role of soil organisms (bacteria, protists, fungi, nematodes, mites, other invertebrates) in the decomposition of organic matter for plant nutrition, and their response to field management. The above ground management effects on below-ground soil ecology are key to sustainable management. Community structure and ecological functional role of the biology affect ecosystem function and respond to environmental changes.
