This special issue of Applied Soil Ecology contains the Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Earthworm
Ecology (ISEE-10), held in Athens, Georgia, USA in June of 2014. ISEE-2010 was attended by 120+ delegates representing 24 nationalities (Fig. 1). The papers collected here represent only a small fraction of the more than 150 oral and poster presentations that were delivered at the Symposium, but these papers still offer the reader a glimpse into the breadth and diversity of topics that were considered in the scientific program. That ISEE has reached its 10th iteration is testament to its maturity, and the continuing interest of the world’s soil ecologists in earthworms, but also to the ability of earthworm ecologists to adapt their research to changing technologies. Although some of the session titles have been represented in the Symposium program for decades, the tools applied to problems in earthworm ecology have changed, and can only be considered as contemporary and on the cutting-edge. Following is a brief synopsis of the program for the Symposium.
