Biology and Fertility of Soils

(The H4-Index of Biology and Fertility of Soils is 26. The table below lists those papers that are above that threshold based on CrossRef citation counts [max. 500 papers]. The publications cover those that have been published in the past four years, i.e., from 2019-08-01 to 2023-08-01.)
