Hi Everyone,

Working as part of an sDiv working group, sWorm (, I am conducting a survey on soil biodiversity data to assess what data currently exists, as an initial step towards developing a global soil biodiversity database. The results will allow us to identify key gaps in our knowledge and issues for database development. 

We are asking for as many people as possible to fill out the survey, which will only take 10-15 minutes to complete, and is available at:

If you are able to share the survey with colleagues, that would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
