RUEDA, Diana Marcela; NEGRETE YANKELEVICH, Simoneta  y  FRAGOSO GONZALEZ, Carlos. Scale of Spatial Independence of Edaphic Mesofauna on a Pasture-Forest Transect at the Botanical Garden "Francisco Javier Clavijero". Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.1, pp. 191-195. ISSN 0065-1737.

In order to evaluate the scale of spatial patterns in edaphic mesofauna in a pasture-forest gradient, a collection of soil samples was obtained from a transect, followed by faunal extraction, counting and sorting. Only Sternorrhyncha (except Coccidae) and Coccidae geostatistical analysis showed spatial dependence within the scale 25-500 cm. Results suggest a revision of the current methods of soil-fauna sampling, in which sampling intensity and intervals could be optimized for each taxon.
