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 extent caused by differences in the efficiency of the extraction methods. The mean values of numerical abundance for different types of ecosystems ranged from 7.6 -10 m-2 for semideserts to 9.2 106 m-2 for temperate grasslands. The respiratory metabolism in more productive sites corresponded to an energy… Expand
