Population asynchrony alone does not explain stability in species rich soil animal assemblages: the stabilising role of forest age on oribatid mite communities

Tancredi Caruso, Viesturs Melecis, Ugis Kagainis & Thomas Bolger
1. The importance of microbial and plant communities in the control of the diversity and structure of soil animal communities has been clarified over the last decade. Previous research focused on abiotic factors, niche separation and spatial patterns. Significant gaps still exist in our knowledge of the factors that control the stability of these communities over time. 2. We analysed a nine-year data set form the national Long-term Ecological Research Network of Latvia. We focused...
