We came across some interesting animated short videos that are part of a University of Western Australia project funded through the Australian Government's National Landcare Program and supported by South West Catchments Council.

Developed by Professor Lyn Abbott to support the new book "Soil Biological Fertility and Climate Resilience" which is planned for release in autumn 2020. An app and ebook summary will also be released to help communicate complex aspects of the book.

While you wait for the book have a look at the videos here
