Protista Rule OK

I'm a mere lurker on this group;  but as a technical writer and long-time 
fan of single-celled life, I've been interested in the protista since 
they were infusoria.I'm writing to stir you guys up. I want to see this 
group survive.

Maybe a question would help. Can I get some discussion and/or some 
references about the ecological role of protista is soils?
Soil organisms are another interest of mine, particularly the unsung 
springtails that do as much as the earthworms to keep the humus humming, 
at least in the temperate zone. But what about the protista?

I wait with baited breath,
