dc.description.abstract This paper describes research on the relationships between grassland management practices and the diversity of biological communities in soil. Observations are being made in field trials with applications of nitrogen and lime and of insecticide to an original diverse sward and to a single species grass re-seed. The treatments are designed to produce different degrees of diversity in communities of soil animals and microbes. Assessments are being made over three years of the effects on the populations, activity and diversity of root-feeding animals, arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, soil bacteria, fungi and micro fauna, including nonplant feeding nematodes. Associated laboratory experiments assess the effects of root herbivores with different feeding sites and mechanisms on the quality and quantity of rhizosphere deposition and it relationship to microbial communities. In this way, we shall develop an understanding of the relationships between root-herbivory and soil biodiversity and between of biodiversity and soil energy and nutrient transformations. en_US
