Goldschmidt Conference, Session 11o: Soil-Plant Interactions: Experimental and Modelling Approaches

Paris, August 13-18th 2017 https://goldschmidt.info/2017/

 

Convenors: Frederic Gerard (INRA, UMR Eco&Sols), K. Ulrich Mayer (UBC, Vancouver), Steve Yabusaki (PNNL).

Keynote: Jirka Simunek (UC Riverside)

Soil-plant interactions are at the centre of many economical and environmental issues related to climate, erosion, weathering, food and biofuel production and water resources. Soil-plant interactions are not restricted to the root zone, but also affect the top soil by litter fall and decomposition. Soil-plant interactions involve a complex interplay between hydrological, geochemical, physical and biological processes, including the cycling of carbon, nutrients, metals, and gas exchange with the atmosphere. This session aims at gathering contributions that explore the functioning of soil-plant interactions through laboratory experiments, field studies and numerical modelling with a particular focus on the role of biogeochemical processes, possibly, but not necessarily, coupled with mass transport. Contributions across all scales ranging from the pore scale, rhizosphere, single root, plant scale to the landscape scale are welcome. We will consider contributions on experimental methods, measurement and imaging techniques, as well as modelling approaches. Specific topics include, but are not limited to biotic and abiotic controls on nutrient uptake, soil carbon storage, genotype-phenotype mapping under environmental stress, plant manipulation of soil microbiome, salinity impacts, and the role of plant-soil interactions on mineral weathering and carbon availability. This session is meant to promote exchange between disciplines in this highly interdisciplinary field.
