Abstract:

Earthworm diversity and distribution patterns are generally governed by a variety of biotic and abiotic factors such as soil properties, surface litter, vegetation type and, land use pattern, local or regional climate and anthropogenic activities. In the present study we have analysed the earthworm diversity and soil analysis of Chittur, Palakkad, Kerala and Kanuvai, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The results revealed that four different species of earthworms belonging to three families found in two sampling stations and also analysed the influences of the soil parameters includes macro and micro nutrients on the earthworm diversity.
