Soil is one of the most important natural resources that provides us with vital ecosystem goods and services that sustain life. Nevertheless, the functioning of the soils to provide the ecosystems services are threatened by a wide range of processes and a number of soil threats have been identified in Europe.
Although there is a large body of knowledge available on soil threats in Europe, the complexity and functioning of soil systems and their interaction with human activities, climate change (CC), and ecosystem services (ESS) is still not fully understood.
