Abstract

The AA. use the snails and isopods as case studies to examine: 1) the relationships between activities of animals and abiotic resource dynamics. Here the concept of ecological flow chains is used to explicitly interrelate the flows of energy and materials controlled by biotic and abiotic factors; 2) the relationship between animal density to the spatial and temporal dynamics of soil formation
