|Description||The potential detrimental effect of the non-indigenous linden Tilia x euchlora (in particular due to its honeydew) as opposed to the native Tilia platyphyllos on earthworms and enchytraeids was studied in two urban parks in the city of Brno. No such effect was found but results indicated a lack of soil moisture close to the trunks of both linden species.|
