importance of soil & water biodiversity monitoring

Soil and water biodiversity contribute to ecosystem services such as nutrient cycling, water filtration, pest control, carbon storage, and soil stabilization

To comply with Nature-related Reporting Regulations and protect their brand, large organizations must now consistently and accurately monitor the impact of their operations on biodiversity

Technological advancements mean mapping and assessing soil and water biodiversity from regional to global scale feasible

Systematically measuring changes in the soil and water, in a scalable and verifiable manner, is critical to ensuring biodiversity is continuously preserved, restored or replaced

Soil and water biodiversity includes organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoa, insects, and other invertebrates

Appropriate microbial communities for a given location are context-specific - there is no one-size fits all

Assessing and conserving ecosystem health using species abundance, evenness and richness as indicators is critical to reduce biodiversity loss

Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis is now established as a quantitative estimation tool for biodiversity. complementary to standard soil and water tests for organic matter, pH, nutrients and trace minerals

Applications of eDNA

Invasive or Protected Species Detection

Multiple Species Monitoring

Total Biodiversity Measurements

Accelerated Genetic Progress:

Identification of desirable genetics traits (meat production, feed efficiency, disease resistance) at a younger age can accelerate genetic progress within a herd.

Health & Welfare:

Prioritize traits like reproductive health and resistance to disease, reducing the risk of breeding stock transmitting detrimental traits.

Increased Efficiency:

Improved genetics can lead to better feed conversion rates, reduced veterinary costs, and lower mortality rates.

Long-Term Sustainability:

Healthier, more efficient animals are not only economically advantageous but also reduce the environmental footprint of intensive farming.
