The functional role and diversity of soil nematodes are stronger at high elevation in the lesser Himalayan mountain ranges

Yasmeen Kouser, Ali Shah & Sergio Rasmann
Soil nematodes are a foremost component of terrestrial biodiversity, they display the whole gamut of trophic guilds and life strategies, and by their activity, affect major ecosystem process, such as organic matter degradation and carbon cycling. Based on nematodes’ functional types, nematode community indices have been developed, and can be used to link variation in nematodes community composition and ecosystem processes. Yet, the use of these indices has been mainly restricted to anthropogenic stresses. In...
