Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas Maps

Collection: ESDAC : European Soil Data Centre 

Description

Dataset (2016) containing 2 GIS maps from the Global Soil Biodiversity Atlas: 1) the Soil Biodiversity

map showing a simple index describing the potential level of diversity living in soils (with the use of two other datasets: distribution of microbial soil carbon used as a proxy for soil microbial diversity, and the distribution of the main groups of soil macrofauna used as a proxy for soil fauna diversity. 2) the Soil Biodiversity threats showing the potential rather than the actual level of threat to soil organisms. For the development of this map, a number of diverse threats and corresponding proxies were chosen.
