Soil Nematodes of Grasslands in Northern Chinapresents research on China's temperate grasslands, providing the findings and results of a large field survey along a transect across the northern temperate grassland. It examines nematode distribution patterns along the transect from trophic group and family, to genus level, also evaluating their relationship with climatic conditions, plant biomass and soil parameters. The book then presents detailed taxonomy information of nematodes to genus or species level, providing keen insights into nematode diversity along the grassland transect in north China.

Final sections review the advances and perspectives for the research of soil ecology on soil nematodes in China, including recent major discoveries of soil microbial diversity and eco-function during this field survey.

This work will help researchers predict the impact of global change drivers on below ground soil biota and better understand the functioning and services they provide in terrestrial ecosystems.

  • Features previously unavailable information on nematode diversity and distribution along a large geographic region of China
  • Describes the relationship of nematode assemblage composition with climatic conditions, plant and soil characteristics
  • Covers nematode genera and species descriptions along the grassland transect
Qi Li is Professor of Soil Ecology at the Institute of Applied Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shenyang, China, where he has been affiliated for more than a decade. Grants for his research have included funding to explore the extension mechanism of soil water and nutrient buffering capacity, as well as the effects of free air e...
