Earthworm composition, diversity and biomass under three land use systems in south-eastern Australia

Carnovale, Daniela; Baker, Geoff; Bissett, Andrew; Thrall, P

Description

In south-eastern Australia, strips of planted native trees and shrubs (shelterbelts) are frequently established to restore ecosystem services altered by agriculture. Despite their wide use, little is known about the effects of establishing shelterbelts on soil macro invertebrates, especially earthworms, which are of major importance in soil processes. We assessed earthworm composition, diversity and biomass in three land use systems: native shelterbelts dominated by Acacia and Eucalyptus...[Show more]
