A sampling device for soil microarthropods

Auerbach, S.I. and Crossley, D.A., Jr.

1960 - Volume: 2 Issue: 3 pages: 279-287


A sampling tool and a high-gradient Berlese-type apparatus are described which will permit sampling and extraction of soil arthropods under conditions which easily may be duplicated for numbers of samples and which will be efficient for the majority of the inicroarthropods. The efficiency of the high-gradient apparatus was compared to that of a standard Tullgren-type funnel with both kept in a constant environment. No difference in efficiency between the two types was found.
