Free living Nematodes communities used as bioindicators of soil health because their composition well correlates with, two critical ecological processes i.e. nitrogen cycling and decomposition in soil . Nematodes indices withstand statistical rigor better than abundances, proportions, or ratios of trophic groups. Nematodes indices respond to a variety of land-management practices, based largely on life history characteristics of families.
