The role of soil fauna, especially macro fauna, in soil genesis processes is now well known (Ketterings et al, 1997, Caesar-Thon That and Cochran, 2000). Thus, soil macro- fauna and its activity can accurately reflect soil functioning: recent works showed a direct and proportional relationship between earthworms activity and vegetal growth. These changes in micro and macro-fauna populations, abundance, and diversity and the soil biological activity all follow the same trends: a rapid decrease upon cultivation with traditional systems, and a fast improvement when a vegetal cover is permanently kept on the soil and plants with strong root systems improve its structure. These evolutions are similar to trends in yield evolution under various cropping practices. DPPSC systems proved to be highly efficient in restoring biological activity and fauna diversity in degraded soils.
