The soil is a wonderful medium for organisms to live in and ecology of
the soil is one of my favorite subjects.  There are a huge number of
websites depending on what you are looking for (bacteria, fungi,
protozoa, nematodes, mites, earthworms).  A good place to start is:

Elaine Ingham's group (she's at OSU, too, I believe). . .

Or just type in soil and your favorite microorganism into your favorite
search engine.

The soil population is so complex that it manifestly cannot 
be dealt with as a whole with any detail by any one person, 
and at the same time it plays so important a part in the soil 
economy that it must be studied.

The Micro-organisms of the Soil, 1923
