Insightful meta-analysis: Hidden miners – the roles of cover crops and soil microorganisms in phosphorus cycling through agroecosystems

Any of you that were in Leuven in September for PSP6 would have heard Moritz’s interesting talk summarising his findings from his submitted meta-analysis on cover crops, microorganisms and the P cycle. This week the work has been published in Plant and Soil and can be accessed here. For those of you not fortunate to be at PSP6 (it was a great week!) this article comes highly recommended, not least for its systematic approach to literature evaluation. But alas without Moritz’s excellent verbal presentation.

Unique opinion paper reflects on a collaborative discussion between three generations of scientists.

A related paper from the OP16 workshop is available  in the European Journal of Soil Science Anniversary Issue here.

Anthony ‘Tony’ Harrison, Phil Haygarth and Ben Turner the metaphorical academic granfather-son-grandson reflect on 50 years of organic phosphorus research.

As an early career scientist I found this article both unique and valuable. For the teachers among you I encourage you to share this with your students. The  critical discourse evident in this piece offers a unique treatment and perspective for students and more experienced practitioners alike.
