On behalf of the Italian Society of Agricultural Chemistry (SICA), the Italian Society of Pedology (SIPe) and the Italian Society of Soil Science (SISS), we are delighted to invite you to the Second Joint Meeting on Soil and Plant System Sciences (SPSS2021).
The meeting will be held online on the 20th-23rd September 2021.
The title of this meeting `The soil-plant-environment nexus and emerging challenges across terrestrial ecosystems` sets up the ambitious goal of integrating scientific background, applied research and novel approaches to link soil, plant and environmental aspects over various ecosystems. Physical, chemical and biological properties, mechanisms and processes studied at different scales - from molecular to field - will feed the diversity of experiences, opinions and scientific knowledge.
SPSS2021 aims at bringing together academic scientists, researchers and research scholars coming from the three Societies to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects dealing with soil-plant sciences. The program will provide opportunities for open fora and discussion sessions across a wide range of related disciplines.
The scientific program is structured into three sessions covering from forest and seminatural ecosystems, to human-impacted areas and agricultural systems, over four days. The core program is coupled with a scientific and cultural excursion following the course of water from alpine glaciers to lowland rice paddies.
