Advancing SDG 15, this article explores the changes in soil nitrogen and nitrogen functional gene (NFG) abundances within vertical profiles throughout the desertification process.
Advancing SDG 15, this article explore the relationships between plant invasions and soil carbon pools.
Each year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) celebrates World Food Day on October 16th to commemorate is founding in 1945. World Food Day 2020 is calling for global solidarity to help all populations to recover from the crisis, and to make food systems more resilient and robust so they can withstand increasing volatility and climate shocks, deliver affordable and sustainable healthy diets for all, and decent livelihoods for food system workers. In support of this years theme - 'Grow, Nourish, Sustain. Together' - Elsevier presents a curated, open access collection of 40 journal articles and book chapters focussed on increasing food security and sustainability. 
The biochemical effects of trees may significantly influence local pedogenesis as well as pedocomplexity, biodiversity and forest dynamics on both stand and landscape scales. One such effect is the decay of tree trunks, which is driven by organisms, and especially by the microbiome. Decomposition modifies soil formation, which due to the existence of many feedbacks affects the composition of the decomposer community. Advancing SDG 15, this article aimed to uncover general trends in the evolution of Entic Podzols as well as individual trajectories of soil properties below decaying beech trunks in an old-growth mountain forest.

Fire is an ecological disturbance that alters soil microbiomes and the functions they mediate in terrestrial ecosystems. Soil microbial diversity in Mediterranean Basin ecosystems shows resilience to fire following the restoration of plant-soil feedbacks. Advancing SDG 15, this article explores whether microbial functions related to organic matter decomposition and nutrient cycling might show similar patterns of recovery.
Advancing SDG 15, this article explores the effects of pasture diversification with herbs and tree legumes on soil properties.
Advancing SDG 2 and 15, this article explores whether cover crops might enhance entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) presence in vineyards.
By mapping the state of research within each SDG area, this report acknowledges the pivotal role research plays in tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. It aims to better understand the research community’s global sustainable development efforts and assesses the progress made, as well as unmet research needs.
