Zusammenfassung: 
One of the difficulties in working with bdelloid rotifers is to extract them from the substratum. In the present paper a method is suggested to separate moss-dwelling bdelloids and other animals quantitatively from their habitat. By this procedure it is possible to identify the entire spectrum of species and to calculate exactly their individual densities per unit area or dry weight of moss.
