During present study, from both sites, total 556 specimens were collected during entire sampling and maximum population was recorded from dry land (rosa fields) 51.33% (N=290), and least population was recorded from wet territory (fish farm) 48.67% (N=275). In case of rosa fields, total 23 species were recorded belonging to 11 orders, 20 families and 22 genera; whereas, at fish farm, total 26 species were recorded belonging to 9 orders, 15 families and 21 genera. Wherein in case of rose fields (dry land), maximum population was recorded during (3rd sampling) 41±11.90 and least values were recorded during 5th sampling (12±8.61); species abundance was recorded utmost in 7th and 9th sample (11) species at temperature 24 ºC and 71% humidity and least was recorded during 5th sampling i.e. 4 species at 27ºC temperature and 75% humidity. In case of fish farm (wet land), maximum population was recorded during 10th sampling (37±9.96) and least values were recorded during 1st and 12th sampling (11±8.43); species abundance was recorded utmost in 7th sampling (10 species) at temperature 24ºC and 71% humidity and least was recorded during 1st sampling i.e. 3 species at 29 ºC temperature and 75% (humidity). From dry land (rosa fields), Lumbricus terristris (Lumbricidae) was recorded abundantly with relative abundance of 32.07% (N=93) and from wetland, Oniscus asellus (Oniscidae) was recorded as an extraordinary contributing species with relative abundance of 26.91% (N=74); diversity was recorded maximum from dry land (0.0725) and least from wet land (0.0683). Evenness ratio was also recorded in same context (0.0294 and 0.0280 respectively). Analysis of Variance among both territories showed non-significant results (F=0.01; P=0.9153).
