Despite many studies on the impact of arable land conversion to Short Rotation Coppice (SRC), few studies have been carried out on soil biota. This study aims at assessing biological and physico-chemical soil properties that are affected by SRC compared to forestry, grassland and an agrosystem. All samples were collected in the Aisne valley (France), from the same type of soil, with four land uses, i.e. willow SRC, agrosystem, grassland and alluvial forest, 3 years after SRC was planted.
