Soil Science

Contact: Professor Michael McLaughlin

Soils are complex media that support plant growth by supplying nutrients and water. They are critical for sustainability of agricultural and natural ecosystems. By applying expertise in soil chemistry (fertilisers, contaminants, soil carbon), soil physics (soil structure and water availability) and soil biology (nutrient cycling, roots and rhizosphere, mycorrhizae), we conduct research that improves understanding of soil processes and functions, leading to improved methods for soil management.
