With Dr. Shawn Dash of Hampton UniversityDate/Time

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This class will be held via Zoom. Registered students will receive login instructions the day of class.
The world is dependent on soils to produce our food, hold our water, and act as places to build our homes but also a world onto themselves. During this talk, we will explore the biodiversity under our feet. I will discuss the formation of soils and the basics of soil science and use those ideas to explain common elements of soil ecology as it relates to fungi, plants, invertebrates, and the few subterranean vertebrates. This is a popular talk for plant clubs and societies as well as master naturalist groups.
