Soils underpin and are inextricably linked to the ecosystems they support. Robust soil health is critical to ecosystem health, in all natural and farmed ecosystems.

We undertake fundamental soil and ecosystem science for New Zealand, joining the dots across a wide range of disciplines including soil physics and chemistry, ecosystem modelling, and understanding of Te Ao Māori perspectives and concepts of soil health.

Our work in soil and ecosystem health aims to find sustainable ways to balance land and ecosystem use, using information and tools to support effective management of our land resources.
