Tanel Vahter

Research Fellow in soil ecology

Tanel is broadly interested in ecology, but his research is mainly focused on topics related with soil. Soil is central to many ecosystem processes, with soil biota as the driving force. For this reason, his research is tightly connected with the diversity and dynamics of soil biota. Tanel is especially interested in systems where soil use and ecology meet in practice – agriculture, seminatural communities, ecosystem restoration in practice and etc. He feels especially happy when he can use knowledge and experience from basic studies to tackle problems in soil and nature conservation.
