In this sense, the objective of this work was to evaluate the ability to degrade organic matter by edaphic macrofauna (earthworms), carbon/nitrogen (C/N) ratio and hydrogen ionic potential (pH) during the vermicompost process in different residues organic.
The edaphic practices, which consist in soil cultivation according to its ability, can promote the maintenance or the improvement of fertility, as well as its protection.
For instance, the suppression of some organisms can favor the development of others, which may also to be important to maintain the soil edaphic function.
The edaphic fauna was captured using interception (pitfall) traps.
In order to verify the correlation between the species distribution and the edaphic variables, the Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA), developed by TER BRAAK (1986; 1995), was used.
Various factors affect soil intrinsic properties but land-use intensifications in agricultural ecosystems are directly correlated with soil pollution, perturbations of natural habitats and edaphic biotic communities (Black and Okwakol, 1997; McIntyre, 2000).
Association between locust density and vegetation diversity, weather factors and edaphic conditions: The first MFA showed that the first two axes explained almost 42 % of the total variance.
In this review, I highlight studies of edaphic specialists from serpentine outcrops, saline soils, gypsum and other carbonate deposits, and heavy metal-rich mine tailings, and explore such questions as:
CCA being a direct ordination technique plots the species response towards their specific edaphic factors.
Comparing the results obtained in the present study and the values reported in the literature and taking into account the edaphic changes that occurred within each subregion, different strains of bacteria, such as Azospirillum brasilense, showed significant increases in growth and total incorporation of nutrients.
Thus, the distribution, diversity and dynamics of dung beetles greatly depend on climatic conditions and edaphic factors in addition to dung associated with the dung beetle species (Nasir et al., 2016).
