Wageningen Conference on Soil Science 2015
The second edition of the Wageningen Conference on Soil Science is scheduled to take place on August 23 - 26, 2015 on the Wageningen Campus and will address once more the importance of soil science global issues. Following the success of the First Wageningen Soil Meeting we want to continue to address these topics in a dynamic way, by top keynotes, controversial debates, inspiring workshops and master classes as well as oral and poster presentations by participants.
An important result of the Wageningen Soil Meeting 2011 is the November 2012 issue of Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, entitled Soil science in a changing world. Gerben Mol and Saskia Keesstra address in their editorial the crucial role that the soil as a whole plays in global issues like food security, management of water resources, biodiversity and climate change mitigation (see link to this special issue below).
