Long-term effects of plant diversity and composition on soil nematode communities in model grasslands.
An important component of plant-soil feedbacks is how plant species identity anddiversity influence soil organism communities. We examine the effects of grassland plant species growing alone andExpand
A carbon budget for nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades in a Swedish coniferous forest soil
Nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades from a Swedish pine forest soil were investigated in a monthly sampling programme lasting for one year. The monthly mean values of number, biomass and oxygenExpand
Plant species effects on soil nematode communities in experimental grasslands
We examined the effects of 12 different plant species on soil nematode abundance and community composition, and rotifer abundance, in an experimental grassland in Northern Sweden. Monocultures wereExpand
The terrestrial and freshwater invertebrate biodiversity of the archipelagoes of the Barents Sea; Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya
Arctic terrestrial ecosystems are generally considered to be species poor, fragile and often isolated. Nonetheless, their intricate complexity, especially that of the invertebrate component, isExpand
Nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades from nunataks in Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica
Four species of nematodes, sixteen species of rotifers and seven species of tardigrades were found in samples from nunataks in Vestfjella and Heimefrontfjella in Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica.Expand
Distribution patterns of microfauna (nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades) on nunataks in Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica
In a previous paper the occurrence of nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades in 29 samples from nunataks in Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica taken 1991/1992 was recorded. In this study, a moreExpand
Abundance, biomass and contribution to energy flow by soil nematodes in terrestrial ecosystems
A review is made of quantitative estimations on abundance and biomass of nematode faunas from different ecosystems. A great dispersion of the values from different authors is probably to some extentExpand
Vertical distribution of nematodes in arable soil under grass (Festuca pratensis) and barley (Hordeum distichum)
SummaryThe connection between faunal composition and soil factors is discussed in this study on vertical distribution of soil nematodes under grass and barley. The investigation was undertaken on theExpand
Species diversity and random distribution of microfauna in extremely isolated habitable patches on Antarctic nunataks
Populations of metazoan microfauna (nematodes, rotifers and tardigrades) are patchily distributed on mountain outcrops penetrating the ice sheet (nunataks) in continental Antarctica. The abundanceExpand
