Conference in Eberswalde: “Advantages in Soil Landscape Research“

On 19th October 2016 a top-class conference took place at Eberswalde University where German soil scientists joined the invitation of Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development and Brandenburg’s State Office for Mining, Geology and Raw Materials. Time and place were chosen on purpose: the sight has not only a long tradition in forest research and teaching, it has also been a soil science hotspot for more than 100 years. As one of the first, Emil Ramann, professor at Eberswalde from 1885 -1900, described brown soils (cambisols) in detail as one of the most important soil types. More than one century later, a new generation of scientists met to exchange progress results and to remember this pioneer. Further information on the event can be found here (in German):
