Schwerpunktprogramm 2322: Systems Ecology of Soils – Energy Discharge Modulated by Microbiome and Boundary Conditions (SoilSystems)

News vom 23.07.2020

The key concept of this Priority Programme is that soil systems, their biodiversity and ecosystem services are determined by energy and matter fluxes stored in form of SOM (soil organic matter), bio- and necromass, which are subject to thermodynamic principles.

The Priority Programme aims to integrate thermodynamic descriptions into the processes of soil organic carbon turnover in order to gain a systemic view on energy and matter fluxes and their relations to biota, non-living soil components, and environmental properties as boundary conditions. This will enable improved assessment and prediction of dynamic biogeochemical processes, boundary constraints and performance limits, also by taking advantage of modelling approaches describing the energy-driven soil systems in simpler terms. Individual projects and project clusters, respectively, should address these hypotheses with a clear focus on soil organic carbon related to microbial ecology.
