The aim of the present study was to compare the abundances and species compositions of invertebrate assemblages (Collembola, Lumbricidae
, Araneae, Myriapoda, Coleoptera) in the artificial substrate from vegetated and bare residue sites of waste heaps.
It is one of the few species of Lumbricidae that inhabits the regions of permafrost .
The Lumbricidae (Oligochaeta) of southern Finland: species assemblages, numbers, biomass and: respiration Annales Zoologici Fennici ate Views03.
Current understanding of earthworm invasions stems almost entirely from studies of European species belonging to the family Lumbricidae
, which may be of limited applicability to understanding the ecological effects of taxa from other regions on temperate forests.
Physical mapping of rDNA genes, (TTAGGG)n telomeric sequence and other karyological features in two earthworms of the family Lumbricidae
The Family Lumbricidae
was collected at TAMS1 and 2 (Gary Sanitary District reach), and the Family Lumbriculidae was collected at TAMS1, 2, and 3 (Far West reach).
Almost every type of soil contains individuals of at least one earthworm Lumbricidae
In the first 2 seasons, the earthworm population observed in all treatments comprised only one species, Aporrectodea trapezoides (Duges), Lumbricidae
Fifty species belonging to Acanthodrilidae (Acanthodrilinae, Benhamiinae), Eudrilidae (Eudrilinae, Pareudrilinae), Glossoscolecidae, Lumbricidae
, Megascolecidae and Ocnerodrilidae are known to be introduced (Plisko 2010).
Piearce TG (1972) The calcium relations of selected Lumbricidae
Fifty nominal species (including subspecies) are accredited to 22 genera of six families: Acanthodrilidae: Acanthodrilinae (1 genus, 2 species); Benhamiinae (1 genus, 6 species); Eudrilidae: Eudrilinae (1 genus, 1 species); Pareudrilinae (2 genera, 4 species); Glossoscolecidae (1 genus, 1 species); Lumbricidae
(8 genera, 19 species); Megascolecidae (4 genera, 12 species); Ocnerodrilidae (4 genera, 5 species).
