Soil quality -- Sampling of soil invertebrates -- Part 3: Sampling and soil extraction of enchytraeids
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 23611-3:2007 specifies a method for sampling, handling and extracting enchytraeids from terrestrial field soils as a prerequisite for using these animals as bioindicators (e.g. to assess the quality of a soil as a habitat for organisms). It applies to all terrestrial biotopes in which enchytraeids occur.
ISO 23611-3:2007 is not applicable for semi-terrestrial soils and might be difficult to use under extreme climatic or geographical conditions.
