About the event

Soil scientist Rob Parkinson, formerly Senior lecturer at Plymouth University (and before that Seale-Hayne College), uncovers the secret world of soil and how variations in soil properties influence patterns of vegetation and land use across the East Dartmoor landscape. The vital role of soils as a support for terrestrial life, for water storage and as a filter of potential pollutants will be discussed using local examples.
