Earthworm ecological traits updated

A recent paper in Geoderma by Bottinelli et al. has revisited earthworm ecological categories. Based on statistical evaluation of morpho-anatomical traits, specific definitions of earthworm life-form categories are offered. These can be applied by EUdaphobase working groups on traits to help standardize and harmonise vocabularies used in data input.
