Abstract Seven soil threats are distinguished in the draft text of the Soil Framework Directive of the European Commission. Soil organic matter decline and soil compaction are the most relevant for the Netherlands due to intensive agricultural land management. Loss of soil biodiversity should be considered when identifying priority areas requiring protection from organic matter decline and compaction. This report describes the first steps in clarifying the relationship between soil biodiversity and decline in soil organic matter or soil compaction.
