Soil as Pedological Archives, a tool for ecosystem management (APOGEE)

Université de Strasbourg (Dominique Schwartz)


Use of stable carbon fraction of organic matter, to push away the chronologic limit of vegetation changes. Use meanly chemotaxonomics tag and distribution of some major components (linear hydrocarbons, n-alcohols, n-acids, etc) to distinguish in soil the vegetation footprint

Knowledge building and circulation about soil ecosystem services in conservation farming (COSAC)

AgroParisTech (Hélène Brives)
