Invertebrates of the Soil/Compost Food Web

This is another great video put together by RWC friend, Allison Jack. I’m sure some of you remember the last video of Allison’s I shared here: the equally-fascinating “Vermicompost – A Living Soil Amendment”.

This one should definitely help some of you identify some of the critters in your bin!

    Great video! Thanks for sharing.
    What is the magnification level the video was shot at?
    I would love to get some close-up stuff for my grand kids

    great video….right until it showed the worm pooping. I will see that evertime i handle worm castings now 🙂

  1. We shot at many different magnifications since we were looking at everything from amoebae to millipedes. Most of the segments have scale bars so you can get an idea of size.

    If anyone’s interested in using this footage for teaching, there is a high res version available for free, here:\\http://ecommons.library.cornell.edu/handle/1813/28634

    Enjoy!
