Abstract

Soil samples were collected at monthly intervals from two different habitats- a waste disposal site and an agricultural field, near Kolkata, West Bengal. A total of 16 species of oribatid mites of 9 families were recorded from the study sites. The species richness and the abundance of oribatid were maximum in waste disposal site. Whereas, at diversity level, the maximum values for Shannon-Wiener index and Pielou's index of evenness were showed by agricultural field.
