Abstract
The Pampa region is the most important agricultural area in Argentina. Although intensive agricultural activity is leading to important levels of soil degradation, studies on the impact on soil fauna are scarce. Despite the environmental importance of collembolans, symphylans and pauropods in soil, information on the influence of land management on their population densities is poor, particularly in Neotropical agroecosystems. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different management systems on the density of collembolans, symphylans and pauropods. Population abundance of these arthropods was examined in a natural site and a cattle raising, a ...
