International Union of Soil Sciences (IUSS) 2024

SESSION: Micro- e nanoplastics (MNPs) in soil ecosystem= - ID133628


Plastic pollution has been largely explored and recognized in marine environments, while in soil is a relatively new topic, notwithstanding plastic contamination on land might be 4-23-fold larger than in the ocean and agricultural soils alone might store more plastic than oceanic basins. Considering the importance of this topic, within this Session we intend to offer a platform for discussion and invite interested scientists, experts, and stakeholders to present new insights, projects, initiatives, results related to the study of this novel topic in soil ecosystem.

1. Emerging soil health threats
2. MNPs in soil ecosystem
3. MNPs sampling techniques
4. Effects on soil biodiversity
5. Regulation and guidelines

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: The deadline to apply is set on 15 January 2024.

Location Florence, Italy
