Execution of soil biological quality index (QBS-ar) analysis on soil samples and interpretation of results.

The QBS-ar index for assessing the biological quality of soil concerns the functionality of populations of micro-arthropods which are used as bioindicators.  Micro-arthropods are able to reveal the environmental changes and the biodiversity level present in the soils.
The QBS-ar index can be used in the assessment of the sustainability of agronomic practices, environmental impact as well as the characterization of polluted sites and as verification tool of remediation interventions.
