Ploughing of a perennial grass ley - effect on the nematode fauna


, : Ploughing of a perennial grass ley - effect on the nematode fauna. Pedobiologia, 334: 199-210

A five-year-old perennial grass ley was ploughed in August 1984. This resulted in increased soil respiration and biomass of microorganisms. Changes in nematode abundance and community structure reflected the increase in microbial production. A peak density of 15.5 x 10-6 nematodes/msuperscript 2 was obtained in ploughed and 12.9 x 10-6 nematodes/msuperscript 2 in unploughed plots.
