Principal aims

The researches carried out in the laboratory of Pedology aimed at maintaining a high level of environmental quality of agricultural and forest ecosystems to preserve the non-renewable resources used in the production processes. Pedology laboratory is able to design and carry out soil cartography, both for general and applicative purposes, from small scale (survey and inventory of the soil resource, regional planning) up to the detailed scale (specific executive projects). The Pedology lab deals with issues concerning the protection of the environment, with particular attention to plant-soil relationships for production purposes and to the recycling of agro-industrial waste for the production of products with high added value. The research group has substantial experience in the evaluation of plant-soil ecosystem in relation to climate-environmental changes and to the biotic and abiotic stresses.


Research activities

The research carried out within the Pedology laboratory is based on the qualitative-quantitative study of organic matter, assessment of the dynamics of microbial communities (fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes) and pedofauna, determination of the main nutrients and bio-geochemical cycles, determination soil enzymatic activities. Extraction and characterization of humic substances, phenols and polyphenols. Essay of biological activity of organic compounds and not ,on different plant systems: in vitro cultures, hydroponic crops, plants in microcosms. Production of compost from agro-industrial wastes. Analysis of the enzymes marker of primary and secondary plant metabolism, and detection of secondary metabolites such as antioxidants and phytonutrients in plants.
