We prototyped a device called EDAPHOLOG monitoring system that consists of (1) a probe that catches and detects soil microarthropods and estimates their body size; (2) a data logger transmitting data to a central database, and (3) a Java application for retrieving data. The system is especially suitable in field research focusing on temporal activity […]

Biomass of soil mesofauna is an important measure in soil ecology, especially in C-sequestration or ecological indication. And since it’s a time-consuming work, we developed a device and software to automatize this lab measurements and work on to do it in the field. The new image analysis method facilitates and accelerates the body length measurement of the collembolan […]
