The European Commission Joint Research Centre (JSC) & the European Soil Data Centre (ESDAC) have released the first-ever Global soil biodiversity atlas that maps the soil biodiversity of the entire planet.

It describes soil as habitat for the diversity of organisms that live under our feet. It also draws attention to the threats to soil biodiversity, such as invasive species, pollution and intensive land use practices, or climate change.

The atlas also provides current solutions for a sustainable management of soils.
