    Abstract

    Earthworms of six species burrowed rapidly into limed Sitka spruce F and Ea horizon soil, and less rapidly into unlimed soils. The species are possible candidates for inoculation into limed deep peat soils under spruce to improve rates of N mineralisation, and enhance tree growth. -from Authors
