How far is too far for saproxylicbeetles?


Forster, L and Schmuki, C and Glen, M and Grove, S and Mohammed, CL, How far is too far for saproxylicbeetles?, Poster & Oral Presentation at the 3rd Combined Australian and New Zealand Entomological Societies Conference, 28 August - 1 September 2011, Christchurch, New Zealand (2011) [Conference Extract]


Saproxylic beetles drive carbon and nutrient recycling in forestecosystems. Their dependence on dead wood makes them vulnerable to reductions in wood through harvesting and removal for fuel wood. Sustainable forest practices that maintain biodiversity need to manage the spatial scale at which coarse woody debris(CWD)is maintained so that it continues to be available for saproxylicbiota.
