FIRST DATA ON SOIL ARTHROPODA COMMUNITIES OF HAZEL-GROVES IN CENTRAL ITALY

G. Testa, M. Zapparoli
Soil Arthropoda communities in hazelnut cultivated areas in Viterbo district (Latium, Central Italy) are studied and some preliminary results are presented. Two sites were sampled by pitfall-trapping over one year; only macrofauna is considered. Monthly and annual activity density and their % values of the main taxa recorded are analyzed. The possible role of agronomic practices as affecting factors of faunistic diversity is discussed.
