The edaphic macroarthropod population of a mixed temperate forest composition phenology and spatial organization



The edaphic macroarthropod population of a mixed temperate forest composition phenology and spatial organization



Pedobiologia 27(1): 1-14



Composition, density and spatial distribution of edaphic macroarthropod populations (except ants) was studied every month during a 1 yr cycle (1979-1980) in a forest ecosystem (France). More than 28,000 individual specimens were collected. Diptera larvae were 50% of the total number of animals collected during 12 mo.; Coleoptera larvae represented only 12% of this number, and no other group reached 10%. The average of the total population density of all macroarthropods was 2300 individuals/m2. The phenology of the various groups is described. Differences between winter and summer populations were revealed. Diptera had the highest population density in winter and most other groups in summer. Distribution of groups between the soil upper levels and their seasonal variations are described. The level of aggregation is characterized for horizontal distributions. Results were compared with previous observations on the same forest under different climatic conditions (exceptional dryness), and with data from the literature.
