The soils in tundra, grasslands, tropical forests are very different, but they have one thing in common; they all host an astounding diversity of life. Inhabiting these underground worlds are millions of species, which play vital roles in maintaining soil health and preserving the balance of their ecosystems. In the latest Bio News from the Museum's Science Bulletins program, a new study shows that biodiversity underground is much greater than previously thought, with a direct relationship to life on the surface.
