Nguyễn Thị Anh Dương (third, left) discusses with her foreign fellows at an international seminar on sustainable development in Bonn, Germany, 2018. — Photo Courtesy of Nguyễn Thị Ánh Dương Dương, who works at the Vietnam Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, has conducted research and data collection, building a database of soil nematodes in Việt Nam for over 10 years. She has collaborated with 70 leading scientists in the field at 57 laboratories around the world to research and publish the work. “Ecology research often focuses on visible parts of the ecosystem like large plants and animals, and overlooks tiny worms living in the soil, like nematodes. Despite their importance for ecosystems, few quantitative, spatially-explicit models of the active belowground community currently exist. That’s why we wanted to study these most abundant animals on Earth,” Duong said. The study revealed that there are 57 billion nematodes for every single living human being – much greater than previously estimated. They also have a total biomass of about 300… Read full this story
