Earthworm is one of the most important soil animal while their activities are depending on a soil properties and climate. The deforestation of land into another function could changes the soil properties that could infact earthworm. Investigation the population and ecology of earthworm during the wet and dry season in the deforested soil at a hilly area Sumberjaya, west Lampung, South Sumatra, Indonesia was conducted. Soil samples and earthworm were collected from the top soils (0-10 cm), sub-soils (10-20 cm), and deeper soil (20-30 cm) in different land with the different vegetation after deforestation, i.e. Secondary forest, bush, alang-alang, and coffe plantation. The population and ecology of earthworm showed a close correlation with the seasonal trend. A great deal of adult type of earthworm were found in the top soil in the bush, however in dry season all of earthworm were living in a deeper layer of soil, and they were larva and juvenile type. Furthermore, a large amount of casts were produced by earthworms. The carbon contents in casts increased more quickly than in the native soil.
