Extraction of Soil Microarthropods: A low cost Berlese-Tullgren funnels extractor

Author(s):

Ruquaeya Bano, Sharmila Roy

Abstract:
Construction and operation of a low cost Berlese-Tullgren funnels extractor for extraction of soil microarthropods is described. The extractor is efficiently and rapidly extracts flightless microarthropods from soil samples. It is constructed from materials readily available in the local market in India in which soil arthropods are forced by a temperature gradient to move from soil samples to the collecting tubes. It is economical and easy to procure as compared to the imported counterpart.
