Earthworm population dynamics in different jhum fallows developed after slash and burn agriculture in north-eastern India



Earthworm population dynamics in different jhum fallows developed after slash and burn agriculture in north-eastern India



Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences Animal Sciences 974: 309-318



The population dynamics of earthworms in 3 successional fallows developed after slash and burn agriculture (jhum) at an elevation of 960 m in Meghalaya were analysed. While 0- and 15-yr old fallows had only one species in the soil ecosystem, 5-yr fallow had an additional species. Monthly population fluctuations were related to soil temperature, moisture and litterfall patterns. The rate of mortality in the population was high with a low mature population fraction.
