Title: Mineral cycling in soil and litter arthropod food chains. Annual progress report and incremental funding request

Relationships have been investigated between soil fauna, soil microbes and the decomposition process. Progress is reported in measuring the stimulatory effect of soil arthropod activities upon microbial immobilization of nutrient elements and other elements, and in evaluating the effects of arthropod feeding upon decomposition rates of unconfined leaf litter.
