Abstract:

A comprehensive study was conducted on the distribution of earthworms and soil analysis in the Polluted area of Palakkad district. There are some exotic and native peregrine species which has the inherent ability to withstand in disturbed habitats. Such earthworm species have high medicinal value due to the presence of immunologically active compound in their body. The present study reveals that four different species of earthworms was identified from the sampling stations and analysed the influence of the soil parameters like macro and micro nutrients on earthworm diversity.
