Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the soil Collembola communities in the relict closed lowland steppe oak forests in the Kiskunság. Further goal was to carry out comparative analyses of Collembola community diversity and abundance between the autochton oak forests and the replacement allochton plantations of non-native tree species (hybrid poplar, black pine, black locust). Soil samples were taken from the above mentioned four forest habitats in three replicates. A total of 3,033 specimens belonging to 56 Collembola species were collected and identified. Species richness was the highest (47) in the autochton steppe oak forests. In comparison, number of species was less than a half in the hybrid poplar (19), black pine (22) and black locust (23) plantations. Regarding the relationships between the measured soil parameters and Collembola communities, positive correlations were found between the C/N ratio and Collembolan abundance (r=0.71; F=10.44, p<0.05) and between soil organic matter content and Collembola diversity (r=0.61, F=5.98, p<0.05). The canonical correspondence analysis (CCA) well separated the steppe oak forests and the non-native plantations along the axis mostly determined by soil pH and carbon content.
