The macro fauna of the soil of a plantation of hibiscus elatus in cuba preliminary results
To study the soil microfauna on a Majagua (Hibiscus elatus Sw.) plantation, all individuals were collected monthly from samples of soil and litter in an area of 400 cm2 and 15 cm of depth, separated in 3 different layers: the first formed by the litter; the second from 1-7 cm of soil; and the third from 7-15 cm. The fauna was formed by 4 main orders: Hymenoptera, Diplopoda, Oligochaeta and Coleoptera, the 2nd layer having the highest number of individuals. Diplopoda and Coleoptera were most abundant during the dry season; Oligochaeta were most abundant during the rainy season. Hymenoptera appear to stand both conditions, but it was not possible to establish the period in which they have the best living conditions.
