What is the Atlas?
The Atlas highlights the unseen majority of Earth’s biodiversity and the critical role these organisms play in ecosystems: cycling nutrients and carbon, supporting plant growth, filtering water, decomposing organic material. The Atlas is a remarkable international scientific effort of 121 experts from 29 countries, resulting in an unprecedented collection of images, maps, and statistics for researchers and policy makers alike. It synthesizes the latest scientific research and identifies the importance of and key threats to soil biodiversity and functioning.
