Description

The place or environment where a plant or animal naturally or normally lives and grows is known as habitat. The physical and chemical characteristics of a soil are different in different parts of the soil profile. Generally, the upper layers of a soil have more organic matter and roots than the lower layers. Other differences are related to the nature of the soil constituents, to weathering processes and to past land management practices. The origin of the soil determines the particle size distribution, which in turn affects the way the soil is packed, creating spaces and surfaces that are either accessible or inaccessible to soil organisms. The proportion of clay or sand influences the structural characteristics of soil and determines its response to management practices.Slugs,snail,spiders,ants,woodlice,beetles,earwig,

centipede and millipede are usually found in the soil.
