: The Hengshan Mountain is located in the central subtropical zone with a monsoon climate. Here it is warm and humid, with dense forests. In the forest soil profile, there are many sorts of invertebrates, including 30 genera,:10 classes and 4 phyla. In evergreen broadleaf woods, the density (ten thousand/m3) of soil invertebrates is the greatest, followed by that of conifer woods and that of bushgrass. Among soil invertebrates found in the area, acarina, collembola and nematoda are dominant, these three account For 92.88% of the total soil invertebrates col- lected.
