    As in . . .

    The paper will cover study of the nematode fauna, its relation with moisture, and its soil-types.

    Or, "The study of nematode fauna, it's relation with moisture and soil types.'
    Are you studying horticulture?

    Re: does this phrase sound gramatically correct?

    Is this a heading, the title of a paper?

    Why are you saying 'nematode fauna" rather than 'study of the nematode..."? Are you trying to get across the idea of all the species that may or may not be present (owing to the factors of soil and moisture)?
    Do you mean, 'soil types and moisture content'?
