Ecological model of changes in complexes of soil mesofauna of the forest ecosystems in conditions of lack of moisture

  • V. N. Veremeev F. Scorina Gomel’ State University


Comparative data on the species composition and quantitative characteristic of soil mesofauna of Pinetum myrtillosum and Quercetum urticosum under condition of moisure deficiency are presented. The sharp reduction of species diversity, invertebrates’ number and biomass under condition of moisure deficiency is observed. It is particularly manifested in the oak woods.
