Soil organisms play a crucial role in the terrestrial ecosystem. Plant protection products (PPPs) are known to affect soil organisms and might have negative impacts on soil functions influenced by these organisms. Little research has been performed to date on the impact of PPPs on tropical soil ecosystems. Therefore, in this study it was investigated whether the effects of the fungicide benomyl (chosen as a model substance) differ between tropical and temperate regions and whether data… CONTINUE READING
