Video Title:
Discovering the Wonder of Soil Through Science and Art
Description:
Soils are everywhere, and because of that, they often fade into the background. Yet, soils are a beautiful natural wonder that serve as habitat for some of the most biodiverse communities on Earth and provide fundamental ecosystem services to humanity. In this talk, speaker Yamina Pressler, PhD, Soil scientist and educator at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, CA will discuss the diversity, complexity, and heterogeneity of soils across landscapes. This talk will explore how each soil is unique, and Dr. Pressler will describe how soil scientists study how soils form, function, and change over time. Dr. Pressler will also show you where you can explore the beauty and wonder of soils in your own life, what to look for when you find them, and how to use art to capture soil memories.
