Taishan Mountain has diverse habitats and abundant groups of soil animals. Five habitats,Platycladus orientalis forest,Pinus densiflora forest,Robinia pseudoacacia forest,Pinus tablaerormis forest and Grassland, were selected and the diversity of soil animals in different habitats in Mt. Taishan were investigated and studied in 1997–1999. Totally 52 groups of soil animals were found, belonging separately to 7 Phyla, 11 Classes, 25 Orders and 28 suborders or families.

Habitat influences on diversity of bacteria found on German cockroach in Beijing.
Cluster analysis showed that cockroach densities and bacterial abundance found in the market differed significantly from the other four habitats, but the bacterial diversity was not significantly reduced in sensitive facilities such as hospital and restaurant, even though pesticide and bactericide were more frequently applied there.


Non‐parametric multivariate analyses of changes in community structure
Which elements of this often-quoted strategy for graphical representation of multivariate (multi-species) abundance data have proved most useful in practical assessment of community change resulting from pollution impact are identified.
