Disturbance and recovery of litter fauna: a contribution to environmental conservation

Nature conservation requires a better understanding of the functioning of animal communities that are affected by a disturbance. This thesis proposes new insight on how animals communities composed of soil fauna (nematodes, Collembola and macroarthropods) from various biomes are impacted by a disturbance and how they recover afterwards.

High species richness promotes the resistance of communities to disturbance, but high species abundance does not.
