ABSTRACT

 

Studies were carried on Zonal and Latitudinal peculiarities of soil invertebrate communities of Siberian ecosystems. The results obtain are very important for assessing the contribution of eco-components. Results show that zonal-latitudinal structure of soil population is determined by climatic factors on the area. Research also emphasises the impact of edaphic-climatic conditions for the development of large invertebrates.
