mites and springtails from a coffee plantation in Sierra Sur, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Also, soil fauna, such as collembola, earthworms and oribatid
mites, will join in the competition and cannot be ignored, not only because of their wide diet but also because of their mobility.

The Berger-Parker index as an effective tool for monitoring the biodiversity of disturbed soils: a case study on Mediterranean oribatid
(Acari: Oribatida) assemblages.
Differences in the diversity of oribatid
mite communities in forest and agro systems lands.
The presence of detritivorous and mycophagous organisms, as springtails and Oribatid
mites, supports the hypothesis that they are using debris accumulated and underline the importance of arthropods on litter decomposition in bromeliads.
Indeed, according to , soil moisture is one of the most decisive factors affecting the life of Oribatid
Only the life cycle of Schizorchis includes an intermediate host, probably a soil-dwelling oribatid
mite (Guan & Lin 1988), which is not likely to play a dominant role in parasite dispersal.
