Abstract

SHORT COMMUNICATIONS J. KIMPINSKI 1) & H. E. WELCH 2) : Comparison of Baermann funnel and sugar flotation extraction from compacted and non-compacted soils. Sampling and extraction techniques were important factors in studying nematode populations in western Canadian soils. A known number of a mixed population of living soil nematodes was inoculated into 50 g of autoclaved clay (12.1% sand, 39.2Vo silt, 48.7% clay) and of sand (98.3% sand, 0.7% silt, 1.0% clay) to compare the extraction efficiency of the Baermann funnel (BF) and of the sugar flotation (SF) techniques. In the BF technique the soil was washed through a 40 and a 325 mesh screen. The residue from the 325 mesh screen was placed in a BF consisting of a 15.3 cm glass funnel and two layers of facial tissue supported by loosely woven muslin.
