About The Answer Lies in the Soil

The Answer Lies in the Soil.

Soil is the basis of all life on land, including ourselves, and yet we abuse it. The consequences have always been horrific and will be so again unless we stop treating soil like dirt.

Alastair Fitter from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is going to talk to us about the importance of soil for ecology and biodiversity.

The session will last one hour including 10-15 minutes of Q&A at the end. This event will be held on Zoom and a recording will be available to those who have registered.


Alastair is a trustee of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and Emeritus Professor of Ecology at the University of York. He is a plant ecologist with wide-ranging research interests, including soil ecology and how plants behave in a changing world. He has contributed to our understanding of the structure and function of plant root systems and their symbiotic fungi, and has written a number of books.
