Map of soils distriWe will produce novel models of key soil ecosystems and functions for the major, semi-natural habitats in Scotland (alpine, moorland, peatland, forest, grasslands and low input arable Soil functions rely on a number of soil processes and properties including soil structure, organic matter, nutrient cycling and soil biodiversity. The sensitivity of each of these to change will determine the overall resilience of the soil function which is likely to vary among differing soil types.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
