Mutual relationships of earthworms, plants and oribatid mites.
Languages of publication
Obecne badania ekologii gleby skupiają się na wpływie zróżnicowania roślinności na faunę glebową, a także na oddziaływaniach pomiędzy organizmami występującymi na powierzchni i w samej glebie. Gleba stanowi złożony system oddziaływań między organizmami ją zasiedlającymi. Praca niniejsza traktuje jedynie o trzech elementach tego systemu: o mechowcach, roślinach i inżynierskich dżdżownicach. Opisane zostały wzajemne ich oddziaływania a także ich wpływ na środowisko gleby.
Current research of soil ecology focuses on the impact of diversity of vegetation on soil fauna, as well as the interactions between organisms occurring above and below soil surface. Soil is a complex system of interactions between soil dwellers. This paper deals only with the three elements of this system: oribatid mites, plants and engineering earthworms. This work described their mutual interaction and their impact on soil environment.
