Advancing SDG 15, this article explored the effect of three decades of different soil management systems and winter crops in Brazil.

Contributing to SDG's 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 15 (life on land), this review explores scientific progress in analytical methods, pollution characteristics and ecological effects of microplastics in soils.
Manual chamber-based measurements of CO2 (and H2O) fluxes are important for understanding ecosystem carbon metabolism. Small opaque chambers can be used to measure leaf, stem and soil respiration. Larger transparent chambers can be used to measure net ecosystem exchange of CO2, and small jars often serve this purpose for laboratory incubations of soil and plant material. Advancing SDG 15, this article explores an open source software called Flux Puppy which facilitates chamber-based flux measurements in the field and laboratory

Contributing to goals 11, 13 and 15, this article discusses the significance of integrating green spaces into urban projects to minimise biodiversity loss and incorporate the existing ecosystem services on offer.
Irrigation management may influence soil greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Solid-set sprinkler irrigation systems allow to modify the irrigation time and frequency. Contributing to SDGs 13 and 15, this study quantified the effect of two irrigation times (daytime, D; nighttime, N) and two irrigation frequencies (low, L; high, H) on soil carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions in a solid-set sprinkler-irrigated maize field located in NE Spain.

This journal article addresses goals 15 and 3 by exploring the proposal to set aside half of Earth's land as an interconnected global conservation reserve.
Insect populations are declining even in protected areas, but the underlying causes are unclear.This journal article addresses goals 15 and 13 by exploring whether the factors driving the loss of insect diversity include invasive and/or introduced insects transmitting pathogens to less-resistant native species.
This journal article addresses goals 7, 12, 13 and 15 by discussing how the rising demand for renewable resources has increased silage maize production which has adverse environmental effects and therefore limits the advantages of renewable biomass.
Advancing SDGs 2 and 15, this article explore the interactive effects of experimental soil warming and reduced earthworm densities on the abundance and diversity of soil organisms in a common barley agricultural system in the Hohenheim Climate Change Experiment (HoCC) in South West Germany.

This paper critically reviews current scientific knowledge surrounding microplastics in the environment, supporting SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
