  Information - SSS22 Ants in the Soil System. A hydrological, chemical and biological approach (co-listed in BG)

Event Information
Ants are important components of most soil invertebrate communities. Besides their large contribution to biodiversity, they are considered
ecosystem engineers that alter the flow of water, energy and nutrients through terrestrial ecosystems. However, despite the importance of these insects for terrestrial ecosystems, relatively little is known on how they influence soil hydrological, chemical and biological processes. In this session, we will review the status of soil/ant relationships and present case-studies on the impact of both mineral and organic mound-building ants on soil processes. We invite contributions on any of these soil-ant topics. If enough interest is shown, we would like to have selected papers published as a special issue in a soil, ecology, or a entomological journal.
