Whalen, J. K., Han L. and Dutilleul, P. 2015. Burrow refilling behavior of Aporrectodea turgida (Eisen) and Lumbricus terrestris L. as revealed by X-ray computed tomography scanning: Graphical and quantitative analyses. Can. J. Soil Sci. 95: 231-235. Solute and gas transport through earthworm burrows is altered when burrows become refilled. Earthworm burrow refilling was evaluated with non-invasive X-ray computed tomography in undisturbed soil cores. Proportionally, Lumbricus terrestris refilled burrows had more air-filled space left around their perimeter than those of Aporrectodea turgida, which often were completely refilled.
