The abundance, biomass, vertical distribution, and taxonomic composition of soil invertebrates (springtails, macrofauna, and termites) were studied in forest formations differing in edaphic and climatic conditions: lowland forests dominated by Lagerstroemia spp. or Dipterocarpus spp. in the Cat Tien National Park and in a mountain pine (Pinus kesiya) forest on the Da Lat Plateau, southern Vietnam. In the lowland forests, springtails had a relatively low density (10000–12000 ind./m2), but their… Expand
Termites (Isoptera) in forest ecosystems of Cat Tien National Park (Southern Vietnam)
TLDR
The species composition, abundance and colony sizes of terrestrial termites were studied in five forest habitats of Cat Tien National Park, Southern Vietnam and four species dominating in the studied habitats belong to active litter decomposers. Expand
Diversity and community structure of testate amoebae (protista) in tropical montane rain forests of southern Ecuador: altitudinal gradient, aboveground habitats and nutrient limitation.
TLDR
The present thesis investigates the density and diversity of testate amoebae in litter, soil and aboveground habitats along an elevational gradient of tropical mountain rain forests in southern Ecuador, evaluates correlations with biotic and abiotic factors, and proves the role of nutrient limitation. Expand
Trophic structure of a tropical soil- and litter-dwelling oribatid mite community and consistency of trophic niches across biomes
TLDR
The diversity of trophic niches and the range of resources consumed did not differ between temperate and tropical communities of Oribatida and similar δ15N values were observed for oribatid mite families across temperates and tropical ecosystems, suggesting that the taxonomic system of soil- and litter-dwelling Orib atida is ecologically consistent and supporting the ‘taxonomic sufficiency’ principle. Expand
Testate amoebae of a monsoon tropical forest of South Vietnam.
TLDR
The variations in the species composition and diversity of testate amoebae in soils was likely caused by several mechanisms including local variations in hydrological regime, the differences in chemical and physical properties and decomposition rates of plant litter, and mineralogical features of soils.

Termites as a factor of spatial differentiation of CO2 fluxes from the soils of monsoon tropical forests in southern Vietnam
Annual dynamics of CO2 fluxes from soils and the impact of the living activity of termites on them were studied in plain lagerstroemia semideciduous monsoon tropical forests of southern Vietnam. OnExpand
Protected Natural Areas of South Vietnam - Dong Nai Biosphere Reserve
TLDR
An inverse relationship between the number of oribatid mites and their species diversity is identified, confirming by high biodiversity richness of the soil resources of the Dong Nai biosphere reserve as a result of unique natural conditions. Expand
RECOVERY OF LITTER AND SOIL INVERTEBRATE COMMUNITIES FOLLOWING SWIDDEN CULTIVATION IN SARAWAK, MALAYSIA
TLDR
It is suggested that the alternation of forest structure in fallows may affect taxonomic group composition through changes in diet abundance, and tree species richness and basal area may serve as useful indicators for the recovery rate of invertebrate taxonomic composition in litter and soil. Expand
Structure of mandibles in relation to trophic niche differentiation in a tropical millipede community
TLDR
Neither clear-cut trends in nor evident morphological patterns of, nor significant correlations between the structure of mandibles in Diplopoda species that have different isotopic compositions of nitrogen and presumably exploit different food resources, have been revealed. Expand
Assimilation of labile carbon and particulate organic matter by tropical endogeic earthworms Pontoscolex corethrurus (Glossoscolecidae, Oligochaeta)
TLDR
The high abundance of these earthworms in poor sandy soils is apparently explained by their ability to assimilate root-derived labile carbon, and the presence of carbon available to soil microorganisms allows the earthworms to utilize native soil organic carbon and nitrogen. Expand
Rapid extraction of invertebrates from tropical forest litter using modified Winkler apparatus
Abstract: The Winkler extractor is widely used for collecting both micro- and macrofauna from large samples of forest litter, but the long period of extraction that it demands and that allowsExpand

Seasonal changes in soil arthropod abundance in the dry evergreen forest of north-east Thailand, with special reference to collembolan communities
TLDR
The collembolan community showed constancy in its species composition with seasonal variability over the 3-year study period, and was dominated by a few dominant species over the study period. Expand
Soil macro-fauna in an Acacia mangium plantation in comparison to that in a primary mixed dipterocarp forest in the lowlands of Sarawak, Malaysia
TLDR
The major consequence of the conversion of natural forest to A. mangium plantation was simplification of community structure in many taxonomic groups, which included the explosive increase in biomass of the soil processing earthworm and the litter processing pill bug which may accelerate the mineralization processes.

TLDR
The macrofauna of the soils on the west ridge of Gunung Mulu in 4th Division, Sarawak, were sampled during February and March 1978 and the decline in the biomass of termites and ants correlated significantly with altitude, but the effect on other groups was variable. Expand

The role of termites in an equatorial rain forest ecosystem of West Malaysia
TLDR
It was considered that the termites had an important role in the detritus food chain of the ecosystem and an amount equivalent to about 32% of the daily leaf-litter fall was transported by M. carbonarius to their mounds in experiment 1 and 22% in experiment 2. Expand
Comparison of the abundance and composition of litter fauna in tropical and subalpine forests
TLDR
There is a significantly higher density of litter fauna and a greater taxonomic diversity per gram of litter in the Tropical wet forest than in the tropical dry and the subalpine forests, which can contribute to the differences in litter decomposition rates. Expand
