Changes in edaphic factors and microarthropod communities after clearing and burning in a tropical rain forest in French Guyana



Changes in edaphic factors and microarthropod communities after clearing and burning in a tropical rain forest in French Guyana



Acta Zoologica Fennica 0(196): 142-145



A study of mite and springtail communities in relation to some edaphic factors (soil organic matter, moisture content, amount of litter) was carried out in a cleared and burnt area in a tropical rain forest during the early stages (0-5 years), and after 16 years of recovery. The relationships between animal communities, sites and stages of regrowth were studied with the aid of Spearman correlation analysis, Mann-Whitney heterogeneity test and correspondence analysis. The correlations between the mesofauna and the moisture content differed in some groups mainly according to the hydric profile (inversed in recently burnt soils). The correspondence analysis revealed the relationships in space and time between the sites and their characteristics during the soil restoration.
