Correlations between biodiversity and organic matter in soil and the retention of both water and carbonit is understood that many of the activities humans partake in have a wide variety of effects on biodiversity this is particularly true with the ecosystem of the soil, which many people may be unfamiliar with and unaware of. The directive’s framers simply take it for granted that the recommended measures (protection against soil compacting, erosion, salination, and acidification reducing pollutant inputs) will also be beneficial for soil biodiversity, will help to meet the goals of the convention on biological diversity and will prevent species loss.

Soil structure is essential to soil health and fertility soil structure decline has a direct effect on soil and surface food chain and biodiversity as a consequence. “plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms purify the water and air, and ensure fertile soils hence the uncompromised ability of soil and water to carry out self-purification functions is crucial for drinking water abstraction the natural fertility of the soil ensures a supply of wholesome food. Airclim factsheet air pollution tends to reduce biodiversity, but not nec-essarily biomass or primary production the effects on biodiversity are summarized on page 4 the losses usually represent a decline in rarer, more sensitive species, their places being taken over by commoner and more robust spe-cies. The most important effects of soil erosion on biodiversity february 26, the pollution of water bodies can occur when the soil that is eroded is carrying any pollutants such as agriculture chemicals these pollutants can negatively impact aquatic ecosystems, as well as any organisms that rely on aquatic organisms for food air pollution.

Soil salinity has localised and regional effects on biodiversity, ranging, for example, from changes in plant composition and survival at a local discharge site through to regional changes in water quality and aquatic life.
