Effect of exotic tree plantations on invertebrate soil macrofauna



Effect of exotic tree plantations on invertebrate soil macrofauna



Effect of exotic tree plantations on plant diversity and biological soil fertility in the Congo Savanna: with special reference to eucalypts: 49-55



To assess the effect of growing exotic trees on savanna soils, soil macrofauna was studied among eucalypt (Eucalyptus) plots in Congo of various ages, species hybrids and management practices. Densities of earthworms, termites and litter animals were significantly different between plots whereas ants were present everywhere and did not show significant differences. The changes occurring with age were studied for Eucalyptus PF1 hybrid only.
