Springtails and their Role in Maintaining Soil Health

Springtails are small six-legged animals and their distribution ranges from urbanized areas to Antarctica. They are omnivorous, free-living invertebrates that like moist habitats. Even though they don't take part in the breakdown of organic matter, they end up supporting this by disintegrating organic matter and maintaining the microbial diversity in the soil. Here, this article is about the food habits of springtails and their role in maintaining soil health.
