Soil Fauna Ecology and Ecotoxicology

Welcome to the homepage for the Section of Soil Fauna Ecology and Ecotoxicology. We are dedicated to soil fauna research and have long practical experience within soil ecotoxicology and ecology. We do basic, applied and contract research on soil fauna ecology, ecophysiology and ecotoxicology. Furthermore, we provide an expert advisory role for national and international authorities within our areas of expertise.

The Section has research activities within a large set of topics mostly centralized around the diversity and function of soil dwelling invertebrates and their interaction with the surrounding environments. A keyword list with links to more detailed text and publications is accessible below.
