The 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 the field site of a Swedish integrated research project “Ecology of Arable Land. The Role of Organisms in Nitrogen Cycling”. Higher nematode number (7.6 × 106 m−2) and biomass (340 mg dry wt. m−2) were found under a 4-year-old grass ley than under barley (5.0 × 106 m−2; biomass, 136 mg dry wt. m−2). Plant… CONTINUE READING
