Dal officially opens Centre for Sustainable Soil Management

Dalhousie University has officially opened the Centre for Sustainable Soil Management (CSSM). The CSSM will provide a space for academic and scholarly activities focused on soil status and function. The centre will aim to address soil degradation and examine how building soil organic matter can ensure sustainability. CSSM will also provide educational opportunities through a Certificate in Sustainable Management and support for short courses. “One quarter of global biodiversity is found in soil,” said centre co-founder and Dal professor Derek Lynch. “Understanding and maintaining the functioning of soil life is key to sustaining the diverse ecosystem services, essential to life on earth, that soils provide.” Dal Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
