Tardigrades in leaf litter were collected from beech forests on Roan Mountain (TN, U.S.A.) and Modenese Apennine (Italy) at different altitudes and during different seasons. Twenty-six species of eutardigrades and 6 species of heterotardigrades were found on Room Mountain and 20 species of eutardigrades on Apennine. In both cases the tardigrade communities showed great biodiversity and a similar species composition, represented by hygrophilous and eurytypic taxa. Differences in the number of specimens and the species composition were found, related to substrate layers, altitudes and seasons.

Abstract

Tardigrades in leaf litter were collected from beech forests on Roan Mountain (TN, U.S.A.) and Modenese Apennine (Italy) at different altitudes and during different seasons. Twenty-six species of eutardigrades and 6 species of heterotardigrades were found on Room Mountain and 20 species of eutardigrades on Apennine. In both cases the tardigrade communities showed great biodiversity and a similar species composition, represented by hygrophilous and eurytypic taxa. Differences in the number of specimens and the species composition were found, related to substrate layers, altitudes and seasons.
