Fragmentation of leaf litter by a natural population of the millipede Julus scandinavius (Latzel 1884)


, : Fragmentation of leaf litter by a natural population of the millipede Julus scandinavius (Latzel 1884). Biology and Fertility of Soils, 103: 202-206

The rate and degree of fragmentation of leaf litter by Julus scandinavius in a sycamore/ash wood in Cheshire, England, were assessed by determining the surface area of the leaf diet consumed by all individuals of each instar during the period when they were present, together with the surface area of leaf materials recovered from faecal pellets. The rate of fragmentation of leaf litter decreased in the series: young instars > sexed immature instars > mature instars.
