Abstract: 

**The objective of the present research was to determine whether there have been changes in the structure and function of the surface (0-20cm) soil system, the zone most affected by litter decomposition, which is associated with the rapid movement of mesquite from historical habitats (arroyo and playa fringe) into recent habitats (grassland and dunes).

We hypothesized that the soil biotic communities would be poorly developed in the recent mesquite habitats because of lower soil C and nutrient concentrations. Data set contains Baerman Funnel extracted nematodes (fungal feeders, bacterial feeders, omnivore-predator, total plant parasites, total nematodes) and Elutriator extracted nematodes (fungal feeders, bacterial feeders, omnivore-predator, total plant parasites, total nematodes).

Abstract: 

Soil samples were collected from mesquite dune site, and analyzed for nutrient content in the plant, N-mineralization potential, rhizobium counts, and nematode counts.

Abstract: 

A mesocosm experiment was conducted on fluff grass (Erioneuron pulchellum) plants to look at the effect of exclusion of mites (with chlordane), nematodes (NEMACUR), mites and nematodes, on soil available, total and microbial nitrogen.
