Building a global database of soil microbial biomass and function: a call for collaboration

Gabriel R. Smith , Thomas W. Crowther , Nico Eisenhauer & Johan van den Hoogen
Global analyses are emerging as valuable complements to local and regional scale studies in ecology and are useful for examining many of the major environmental issues that we face today. Soil ecology has significantly benefited from these developments, with recent syntheses unearthing interesting, unexpected biogeographic patterns in belowground biotic communities. However, some questions still remain unanswered, and the accuracy of these studies is inevitably limited by the extent of the data they draw upon. This...
