Earthworm survey Hoeksche Waard 2012

Latest version published by Dept. Soil Quality, Wageningen University on May 29, 2018 Dept. Soil Quality, Wageningen University

This dataset consists of a sampling campaign of earthworms in arable fields and field margins in the Southwest of the Netherlands. Samples were taken in September and October 2012 with a combination of two methods: handsorting a soil monolith of 20x20x20 cm, and formaldehyde solution (500 ml of 0.2% solution) pored after removing the material to be hand-sorted.

Title Spatial distribution and dispersal of earthworm populations in a complex landscape - implications for soil ecosystem services
Identifier NWO project number: 841.11.003
Funding Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)
Study Area Description Hoeksche Waard
Design Description Each of 15 farms (26 arable fields and 15 field margins) were surveyed. Samples were taken in September and October 2012 with a combination of two methods: handsorting a soil monolith of 20x20x20 cm, and formaldehyde solution (500 ml of 0.2% solution) pored after removing the material to be hand-sorted.

The personnel involved in the project:

Metadata Provider

Sampling Methods

Hand-sorting soil monoliths 20x20x20cm + 0.5 l formaldehyde solution (0.2%).

Study Extent Hoeksche Waard
