Breaking new ground for sustainable management of soil functions along the frontiers of soil ecosystem research

Soil as a Sustainable Resource


We cordially invite you to join the BONARES Conference 2018: “Soil as a Sustainable Resource” to be held 26–28 February 2018 in Berlin.

The conference brings together researchers from all disciplines of soil science to discuss the functionality of soil ecosystems and how to develop strategies towards sustainable soil management. A sustainable bioeconomy requires integration of soil productivity with a wide range of other soil functions including nutrient cycling, carbon storage, water retention and filtering as well as being the habitat of a myriad of organisms and their activities. For sustainable soil management, we need to understand soils at a systemic level and to assess their value in a socio-economic framework.

We are looking forward to inspiring discussions about soil science in the light of a sustainable soil management.

We are looking forward to seeing you in February 2018 in Berlin!
