- Forest was source of biodiversity. Forest conversioninto plantation area causes disruption to existence of soil mesofauna such as Collembola and Acarina. Soil mesofauna have a role to decomposition of organic matters in soil. Purpose of this research is to know the diversity of soil mesofauna and relation between diversity of soil mesofauna and the C-organic content in pepper plantation area in Petaling Village, Bangka Regency, Bangka Belitung Islands. Experiment conducted at three pepper plantation area. Identification of soil mesofauna conducted in the Microbiology Laboratory, Faculty of Agriculture, Fisheries and Biology, University of Bangka Belitung in December 2016 to February 2017. Method used was descriptive correlational with survey technique. Sampling technique used purposive sampling technique and soil sample collected by using ring sample. Separation of soil mesofauna used Berlese-Tullgren funnel. Correlation analysis used was IBM SPSS Statistics Version 21.The results of experiment indicate that the value of soil mesofauna diversity was 1.114 and goes to criteria of medium diversity. Correlation coefficient value between soil mesofauna diversity and C-organic content was 0.335. The positive correlation value means that increased diversity followed by increased C-organic content in the soil.
