A collaboration of international scientists dedicated to enhancing the use of soil biodiversity science and ecosystem services in policy and management of global terrestrial ecosystems.

The Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative (GSBI) develops and synthesizes state of the art research from scientists internationally, providing scientific input to the United Nations and other international environmental bodies.

Its scientific priorities include identifying key knowledge gaps linking soil biodiversity and ecosystem function, developing a platform for synthesis of soil biodiversity data, methods harmonization, and establishing a forum for global research networks. The GSBI secretariat is housed at SoGES.
