Soil provides a vital habitat – primarily for microbes including bacteria and fungi; also for other living organisms like nematodes, earthworms, termites and millipedes. The primary role of soil biota is to recycle organic matter that is derived from the above-ground plant-based food web. 
Plants need soil for its growth; they consume soil elements and pass them up the food chain.  and without the diverse types of plants, the herbivores and carnivores would also not exist. So biodiversity would be greatly affected due to soil erosion.
