Abstract

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.
