Effect of irrigation with municipal water or sewage effluent on the biology of soil cores. II. Protozoan fauna



Effect of irrigation with municipal water or sewage effluent on the biology of soil cores. II. Protozoan fauna



New Zealand Journal of Agricultural Research 21(1): 11-20



The faunal composition of topsoil samples from cores of 10 pasture soils irrigated with either tapwater or effluent from a biological sewage treatment plant, together with the fauna of the tapwater, the effluent, and the trickling filter were examined. The macrofauna was suppressed by the persistently wet conditions and no earthworms were recovered from any of the cores. The microfauna was well represented by microdrili nematodes, rotifers, gastrotrichs, tardigrades, and turbellarians.
