Soil health: challenges for our future

Dr Lynne Macdonald (Research Scientist, CSIRO)
Billions of hidden soil organisms are doing a good deal of dirty work for us, regulating our climate and providing critical life support for our food production. Find out about the declining health of our soils, what can be done about it and why it's important.

Dr Lynne Macdonald is originally from Scotland and has been a soil scientist with CSIRO Agriculture and Food for 10 years. With a background in microbiology, her research focuses on managing soil organic matter to support agricultural production.
