In December, I attended the First Global Soil Biodiversity Conference in Dijon, France. There were over 700 participants. I presented the first invited talk below and was a co-author on the second invited talk:

Impacts of global climate change on the leaf-litter arthropod community: Effects of altered detrital input and rainfall extremes in two long-term field experiments in a deciduous forest.

Absence of large soil predators leads to a decline of lower trophic levels and slower decomposition in temperate beech forests of northwest Spain.
