Urban and industrial land uses have a higher soil biological quality than expected from physicochemical quality.

Abstract

Despite their importance both in soil functioning and as soil indicators, the response of microarthropods to various land uses is still unclear. The aim of this study is to assess the effect of land use on microarthropod diversity and determine whether a soil's biological quality follows the same physicochemical quality-based gradient from forest… (More)
