Oribatocenózy urbánneho prostredia
Oribatid mite communities of urban ecosystems
Program: VEGA
Project leader: Mgr. Mangová Barbara PhD.
Annotation: The human impact on ecosystems and communities of different organisms is highly actual topic. Mankind is changing its environment continuously and is adapting it to its needs without any regard to other biota. By indirectimpact we often unknowingly decrease diversity of all communities (as plants as animal). This way also communities of small soil arthropods are affected that play a serious role in nutrient cycling due to cutting of fallenleafs. This project will be focused on oribatid mite communities in urban habitats and other biotops affected byhuman impact. Oribatids are soil mites and for their communities it typical high diversity in natural ecosystems.This diversity decreases withincreasing human impact and it also changes species composition of thecommunity. Using structure of orbatid mites community we want to define differences between different ways how to care for “green parts” of the city.
