Biological Soil Quality Indicators

A Framework to Incorporate Biological Soil Quality Indicators into Assessing the Sustainability of Territories in the Ecuadorian Amazon, April 2020

Abstract: In Amazonian Ecuador, land-use change from tropical rainforest to different productive purposes is leading to irreversible situations from an environmental perspective. The objective of this paper was to highlight the significance of the biological components in the soils in Amazonian Ecuador, and the importance of considering biological soil quality indexes when assessing environmental impacts in the soils of tropical Pan-Amazonian areas. Since the literature on the subject is dispersed and inaccessible, a bibliographic review was conducted, with the aim of compiling protocols and proposals for practical utilization. We compiled tables, including specific indicators from the biological point of view. We present the available methods for assessing the sustainability of Amazonian territories through the analysis of soil quality. Our contribution facilitates an edaphic perspective to be taken into account in decision-making processes for sustainable territorial development.

Origin of Soil Food Web

The Origin of the term "Soil Food Web":

Michael Martin Meléndrez, Originator of the Soil Food Web

Dr. Michael Martin Meléndrez first used the descriptor "soil food web" in a research paper he prepared in 1976 -- long before dr. Elaine Ingham in Oregon coined the phrase to describe her own theories and insights.

In 1974 I described this relationship as the “Soil Food Web,”

The use of protein as a form of fertilizer is not a new concept.  If  you 
recall from your grade school days the image of a Native American burying a fish 
beneath his corn plant as a natural fertilizer. 
What is really needed to make this work is a good balance of aerobic microorganisms that can devour the protein allowing the N-P & K nutrients to enter the food chain of the soil.  
Some may call this the Soil Food Web, but regardless of what you call it, when the trophic levels of soil life eat protein, there is always an excess or leakage of nutrients that find there way into the plant biomass as plant available nutrients.  
In short the best form of a nutritional calorie for the aerobic bacteria  
(often called beneficial bacteria) of the soil is in the form of protein
and not sugar!  Many organic minded people will promote the concept of using  
molasses as a soil food for microbes, but the best is protein.
