Understanding biogeochemical cycles is critical to sustaining agricultural productivity and environmental quality especially under future climate changes. However, the difficulty of studying and understanding biogeochemical cycles in the soil-vegetation systems under different land use are determined by long-term processes and interactions. The proposed symposia aims to elucidate at what extent long-term field experiments platforms are useful for understanding carbon and nitrogen cycles under land use and climate change scenarios.

Our goal is to bring together scientists from various fields that use long-term platforms to study soil organic matter in terrestrial ecosystems including wetlands.

Presentations dealing with long-term studies are very welcome.
