There's nothing online about this yet but we heard about an interesting lecture coming up on 19th January 2017 on Soil Functions at UWE.

What we have gleaned so far is that it is intended to present a demonstration on gas exchange and speak about microbial functions - eg decomposition in relation to specific environmental issues such as climate and land-use change.

Dr Sam Bonnet is a Senior lecturer in Environmental Science in the Department of Applied Sciences at UWE (University of the West of England). He is a process ecologist with 10 years of postdoctoral experience. His research is focused on understanding plant-soil interactions and soil decomposition processes. In particular, biotic and  abiotic controls of extracellular enzyme kinetics and relationships with microbial functional diversity, plant productivity, carbon storage, greenhouse gas production and other ecosystem services.
