Abstract:As a consequence of global climate change, the biodiversity of soil invertebrates is impacted. Elevated temperatures and moisture alterations in soil have deleterious effects on soil invertebrates. These organisms are important bioindicators of changes in soil ecosystems. Therefore, we investigated the effect of soil moisture, as potential impacts of climate change, on the behaviour, feeding rate and reproduction rates of two soil invertebrate species: woodlice (Porcellio scaber) and earthworms (Eisenia andrei) in laboratory experiments. Our results indicate that soil invertebrates are highly sensitive to desiccation. The feeding activity of woodlice and the reproduction rate of earthworms are likely dependent on soil moisture.

Title:VPLIV POTENCIALNIH KLIMATSKIH SPREMEMB NA OBNAŠANJE, PREHRANJEVANJE IN REPRODUKCIJO TALNIH NEVRETENČARJEV
Abstract:Klimatske spremembe zelo vplivajo na biotsko raznovrstnost nevretenčarjev v tleh. Povišane temperature, ter spremembe količine vlage v tleh, negativno vplivajo na nevretenčarje. Talni nevretenčarji, so bioindikatorji, ki se odzivajo na spremembe v ekosistemu. Raziskovali smo, morebitne vplive klimatskih sprememb na obnašanje, prehranjevanje in reprodukcijo dveh talnih nevretenčarjev, in sicer: mokric (red enakonožci) in deževnikov. Doseženi rezultati so pokazali, da so nevretenčarji zelo občutljivi na izsušenost tal. Vlažnost tal pa zelo vpliva na prehranjevanje mokric in reprodukcijo deževnikov.
