This lecture presents the multitude of edaphic animals: their morphology, strangeness, adaptions, needs, and ecosystem services. To bridge the gap to practical work, I demonstrate methods for obtaining animals from the soil. Interactions between the soil and its inhabitants, and the soil food web are discussed.
- Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)
Students of this lecture have a good overview of forms and performance of edaphic animals and of basic soil zoological methods. They are well oriented for advanced courses and graduate projects with a soil biological focus.
