Memorandum of collaboration among Mollisols institution was signed, and extensive exchanges for young scientists were carried out. A special issue titled Soil Quality and Management of World Mollisols was published in Canadian Journal of Soil Science (2012). These activities were well responded and received by research institutions and scientists in world Mollisols regions.
ANSOis an international, non-profit and non-governmental scientific organization, jointly created by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, other national scientific organizations and academies in “the Belt and Road” region and international organizations.
ANSO is committed to regional sustainable development, academic capacity building, cooperation and exchange in fundamental research and science & technology innovation, the spread and application of knowledge for societal benefit, communication and technology transfer.
