UMR Eco&Sols (Univ.Montpellier, SupAgro, CIRAD, INRAE, IRD)

Functional ecology and biogeochemistry of soils and agro-ecosystems

Eco&Sols is a Joint Research Unit with 70 permanent staff from INRAE, IRD, Montpellier SupAgro and CIRAD.
The research undertaken by Eco&Sols sets out to improve the understanding of the role of soil organisms and plants and the interactions between them and their environment in biogeochemical cycles - mainly C, N and P cycles - within soils and agroecosystems. The biogeochemical cycles of carbon (C) and nutrients (N and P) are studied mainly in Mediterranean and tropical agrosystems, in particular the roles of the various components of the soils (clay particles, aggregates, pores, etc), the plants (roots, stems, leaves and fruits) and the atmosphere. The nature of the biotic and abiotic determinants of the C and nutrient flows is studied in a range of agronomic situations taking account of changing land uses and global climate change.
Eco&Sols est une unité mixte de recherche de 70 permanents associant l’INRAE, l’IRD, Montpellier SupAgro et le Cirad.
Les travaux conduits à Eco&Sols ont pour objectif d’améliorer la compréhension du rôle des organismes du sol et des plantes, ainsi que des interactions entre eux et avec leur milieu, dans les cycles biogéochimiques - cycles C, N et P principalement- au sein des sols et des agro-écosystèmes. Les cycles biogéochimiques du carbone (C) et des nutriments (N et P) sont principalement étudiés dans les agrosystèmes méditerranéens et tropicaux. Les différents composants du sol (particules d’argiles, agrégats, pores…), de la plante (racines, tiges, feuilles, fruits) et l’atmosphère sont étudiés dans ces cycles. La nature des déterminants biotiques et abiotiques des flux de C et de nutriments est étudiée dans des contextes agronomiques variés soumis aux changements climatiques et d’usage des terres.

Priming effect (PE) in soil is proposed to be generated by two distinct mechanisms: “stoichiometric decomposition” and/or “nutrient mining” theories. Each mechanism gets its own dynamics, involves its own microbial actors and targets different soil organic matter (SOM) pools. The...
