    Ground dwelling insects, spiders, and other arthropods play an important role in agroecosystems as predators and saprophytic organisms. Their presence on the soil surface helps the biological control of pests, enhances organic matter decomposition and promotes biodiversity. Soil disturbance, particularly tilling and mowing has greatly affected the assemblage and abundance of epigeic arthropods. This study... More

    Plantation under the forest is a good way of agroforestry, but the canopy closure has a great influence on understory herbs’ growth. In the study, different canopy closures of Phyllostachys pubescens forests were set up to explore its influence on the growth of Ilex latifolia Thunb. The photosynthetic characteristics of Ilex latifolia leaves under different... More
