Collembola dispersion, selection, and biological interactions in urban ecosystems: a review

Abstract

Most of the ecological predictions that are intended to be general have been made on the basis of observations of aerial organisms, ignoring subterranean organisms, which are subject to other-and complex-constraints compared from those present on the surface. Collembola, a soil fauna group, are good biological indicators of soil quality and could be used as model organisms in order to understand assembly rules of soil organisms in cities. Here we review available literature on soil Collembola conducted on 75 publications dealing with urban context. The major points are the following: (1) Soil properties and landscape characteristics influenced soil communities. The importance of landscape is also highlighted by the need of connectivity between urban green spaces in order to allow dispersion of Collembola. However, studies of Collembola communities in urban context are recent, offering little hindsight to understand their assembly. (2) A gap of references values, complexities by a lack of methods standardisation, is observable. Especially, knowledge on dispersion and biotic interactions are still too rare. (3) Moreover, studies on temporal aspect in order to understand better the colonisation processes are almost absent of the corpus.
