Abstract
This study utilizes microarthropod bioindicators to evaluate the changes that occur in soil quality during the course of forest succession. Samples of soil arthropods were obtained from three planted Norway spruce (Picea abies) plots ranging in levels of succession within the Burnt-Rossman Hills State Forest in Summit, NY.
