the results of this study showed that the mean number of Odonthubutus doriae nests in the southwest and north of Esfahan with Taljerd soil were 4.8 and 19.4 nests per twelve square meter plot respectively. the mean number of O. doriae nests in the northwest and northeast of this city with Golshahr soil were 1.2 and 2 nests per plot (12 m2) respectively. The frequency of O. doriae nests in Taljerd soils were significantly more than the frequency of nests of this scorpion in Golshahr soils in different areas of Esfahan. The Taljerd soils are rich in flora and fauna. Considering the similarity in climate in different areas of the city, it can be concluded that the soil texture is the main factor determining biodiversity in Taljerd soils.
