Soil micro-organisms, together with pollinators,
was made a priority group for case studies by the Convention on Biological
Diversity (CBD) in 1996 (Decision III/3). There is currently much activity
regarding the development of a soil organisms initiative within the ambit
of the CBD. If those concerned with soil biology are interested in networking,
SAFRINET will be glad to make its mechanisms available. Please contact
the Network Co-ordinator for details.
