Rhizosphere 4 organized in Maastricht, the Neterlands has just finished and several contributions included sil protists. Many talks and posters showed the importance of protists in the soil food web. Others included diversity information on soil/rhizosphere protists based on sequence data and two talks and several posters entirely focused on functional diversity of soil protists.
Inspiring meeting with more than 600 participants- many of these soil biologists from different fields were or became interested in protists!
