Effect of sewage effluent on soil fauna in a Pinus radiata plantation



Effect of sewage effluent on soil fauna in a Pinus radiata plantation



Australian Journal of Soil Research 33(3): 555-564



Water and nutrients in effluent applied to land may influence soil processes. Late summer and autumn samples were used to assess changes in litter and soil fauna under a 17-year-old Pinus radiata plantation on dune sands in North Island, New Zealand after 7 years of spray irrigation of sewage effluent. Populations estimated included 12 groups of arthropods, earthworms, enchytraeids, tardigrades, rotifers and nematodes.
