Soil Carbon in Natural and Restored Lands

Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Bach

Climate change is a real threat and there is plenty of buzz about how to pull greenhouse gasses, like CO2, out of the atmosphere. Soil is the largest terrestrial pool of carbon in the world and deeper understanding of how carbon ends up in soil, and how long it stays there, can inform actions to directly address global climate change. Elizabeth will provide an overview of soil carbon, why we care, and how conserving and restoring land in Illinois can be part of global climate solutions.

Dr. Elizabeth Bach is the Ecosystem Restoration Scientist with The Nature Conservancy at Nachusa Grasslands in Franklin Grove, Illinois where she works with scientists, land managers, and volunteer stewards to investigate questions about tallgrass prairie restoration ecology. Her own research expertise focuses on soil ecology, exploring how belowground biology supports tallgrass prairie ecosystems through plant-soil interactions and nutrient and carbon cycling. Prior to joining The Nature Conservancy, Elizabeth served as Executive Director for the Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative and continues to contribute to global science-policy work.
