Abstract:

Both species composition and community structure of enchytraeid worms were studied in the soil of alder carr forest in two parts of Poland, viz., the Mazovian Lowland and Puszcza Białowieska (Białowieża Forest). A total of 25 species were recorded. All communities under study were revealed similar in species composition and dominance structure, showing no regional differentiation in the fauna either. The communities in Puszcza Białowieska were characterised by a greater constancy of species occurrence than those in the Mazovian Lowland. The communities from Puszcza Białowieska were also characterised by a smaller mean niche width and a smaller habitat overlap, which is indicative of a greater habitat diversity and a greater specialisation of the species compared to those in the Mazovian Lowland.
