Contribution of Insects' to Enhancing the Soil Fertility
Keywords:Insects, Organisms, Soil biodiversity, Soil health
The United States Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS) defines soil health as the "ability of soil to function effectively as a dynamic living habitat that supports plants, animals and even humans." Healthy soil must have a diverse range of organism to support a versatile ecosystem. The both abiotic and biotic interactions of diverse soil-dwelling organisms influence the structure and management of agricultural ecosystems. Insects play a vital role in promoting biodiversity in a variety of organism groups. Insects help to release and immobilise minerals from soil organic material (SOM), enhance soil structure and encourage plant growth. These actions are critical to ecological processes. Climate change concerns, developmental biology, ecology, biological mechanics, the theory of evolution, genetics, paleolimnology and physiology have all been widely researched. They are well-known to the layman due to their numerous roles. Their conservation, on another hand, is a difficulty.
