Abstract Differences in the litter and soil of northern temperate and tropical and subtropical forest soil and soil faunas are noted. Analyses of the distribution and abundance of Cryptostigmata and Mesostigmata mites in the litter and soil of two Australian subtropical forests are presented. The faunal associations in the litter and soil of these forests are different. It is suggested that the litter and soil habitats of subtropical and tropical forests should be regarded as separate but connected habitats in relation to their fauna. This contrasts with the assumption, for temperate forests, that litter and soil communities are portions of a single system. Copyright
