(English below) 土壤是一個複雜的三度空間結構🍂🌱, 有著迷宮般的物理構造、錯綜的化學環境、多樣的食物資源、以及水與氧氣的梯度變化等龐雜因子, 這些全都壓縮在土壤這小小的空間裡。 而居住在裡面的生物除了和環境有交互作用外,物種之間之內也有交互作用。 這些過程造就了現今地下生物多樣性與群落結構。🕷🐌🐜 在這裡我們將聊聊土壤生物多樣性、群落生態與演化。 藉由文獻閱讀來分享土壤生態相關的科學新知,以及聊聊我們自己的研究經歷與想法。 歡迎各位收聽~ -- Facebook專頁: www.facebook.com/SoilBioDivPaper ---------- Welcome to listening to the podcast on soil biodiversity! 🍂🕷🐌🐜🌱 Soil ecosystem is amazing and is one of the most biodiverse terrestrial habitats.

These things are not distinct. And that's the point I was really trying …

"The challenges facing our society at the moment effectively are the unintended consequence of a solution we found in the late 1700s when society was running out of energy, we had no more timber, and we realized we could dig underground for ancient fossilized woodland, which is basically what coal is from about 300 million years ago. The consequenc…
