Port: Life in Soil

Port: Život v půdě

The idea that soil sleeps in winter is just an illusion. Scientists from the University of Southern Bohemia in České Budějovice will show us that soil does not rest even when it is covered with snow. On the contrary, it lives a rich life. We shall look at fungi and bacteria which are a direct source of greenhouse gases in the soil. We shall get samples and measure the amount of gasses on pastures for cattle. We shall find out that the rearing of cattle brings along the production of greenhouse gasses (CO2, N2O and CH4) comparable to the emissions from traffic and the energy industry.
