Diana Wall and Kelly Ramirez of the GSBI have organized a workshop for the Synthesis Centre for Biodiversity Sciences (sDIV). The workshop will be held in April of 2014 at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) in Leipzig, Germany.
Titled "A framework to improve our understanding of the distribution of global soil, biodiversity: establishing the first quantitative synthesis", the workshop aims to:
1) initiate the synthesis of data on soil biodiversity,
2) outline soil biodiversity distribution knowledge gaps, and
3) identify an action plan.
