DailyDirt: The Dirt On Soil

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

If you look closely enough at nearly anything, you're bound to find some fascinating details. With the right tools, you can see single-celled organisms are literally everywhere (and viruses are even more ubiquitous). The biodiversity of soil is obviously important to farmers, but there are other interesting things we can find out when we quantify the dirt under our feet. If you've ever wondered what's in dirt, check out these links on soil. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.
