Soils play an essential role in ensuring that life on earth is sustainable in response to mounting pressures on ecosystem quality and function linked to population and economic growth. Ongoing and predicted climate change, together with issues associated with the availability and utilization of finite energy and nutrient resources will continue to have major impacts on key soil biological, chemical, and physical properties and processes. This in turn will affect the fundamental integrity and functioning of natural and managed ecosystems.
Improved understanding of the impact of climate change on soil biogeochemical processes will be vitally important, together with the development and assessment of appropriate mitigation measures. There is also an acknowledged urgent need to continue to investigate ways and means of improving the global and regional distribution, utilisation, and reuse of key nutrients, which in turn will improve overall productivity and reduce adverse environmental impacts associated with enhanced nutrient transfer from land to water. It is also important to continue to explore and examine the fate, environmental impact, and mitigation of known and novel mineral and organic contaminants in soil-plant systems.
