About the project

The final goal of the project “MetaInvert-ISO” is the creation of a catalogue of standard procedures, by means of which the collection, determination and use of reliable taxonomic data for the protection of soil biodiversity can be carried out in a transparent and at the same time practicable way (independent of the respective legal requirement).

New, standardised procedures in the assessment of soil biodiversity offer lower costs for the demand side (e.g. agricultural industry, manufacturers of veterinary medicines) in the approval procedures, in particular for the tests for environmental compatibility, which can be provided by the commercially oriented project partners as a new business field and/or by Senckenberg in a commercially operated spin-off.
