From this distribution, a classification scheme was derived as basis for prognostic values of site‐specific earthworm populations, thus enabling the interpretation of changes over by: The earthworm genus is generally accepted to be Lumbricus. There are approximately 4, different species of earthworm.

You should be able to find out more about a particular earthworm's taxonomy by narrowing it down based on region and habitat. Start studying Earthworm Classification.

Earthworm growers can make money by selling earthworms and vermicompost or from tipping fees (charging to have organic materials normally disposed of in landfills "tipped" by a dump truck onto the worm grower’s site, to be fed to the earthworms).

Vermicomposting is the process of turning organic debris into worm castings (manure).Author: Rhonda Sherman. A classification and the distribution of earthworms, suborder Lumbricina (Haplotaxida:Oligochaeta).

Earthworms are key components of soil ecological communities, performing vital functions in decomposition and nutrient cycling through ecosystems. Using data from more than sites, Phillips et al. developed global maps of the distribution of earthworm diversity, abundance, and classification and the distribution of earthworms (see the Perspective by Fierer).

The patterns differ from those typically found in aboveground Cited by: 6. Families. Of the four suborders of Haplotaxida, two are minor lineages, monotypic at family level. Another one, the Tubificina, is sizeable and contains the aquaworms, while the fourth, the earthworms or Lumbricina, unites the bulk of the order's families.

There are thousands of described species of earthworms and likely many thousands more that are yet to be described. Individual species are found in most habitats worldwide.

Different earthworm species are found in natural, agricultural, and. After revolutionizing our understanding of life on Earth, Charles Darwin studied earthworms. Inhe published his last scientific book, a treatise on earthworms ([ 1 ][1]) whose sales at the time rivaled those of On the Origin of Species.

Nearly years later, enthusiasm for earthworms persists, fueled by the recognition of their importance in terrestrial systems as different Author: Noah Fierer. Earthworm, any one of more than 1, species of terrestrial worms of the class Oligochaeta (phylum Annelida)—in particular, members of the genus Lumbricus.

Seventeen native species and 13 introduced species (from Europe) occur in the eastern United States, L. terrestris being the most common.

Earthworms have been called ‘ecosystem engineers’; much like human engineers, they change the structure of their environments. Earthworms are very versatile and are found in nearly all.
