Title: Changes in Carabid Community Structure in a Dry Sand Prairie After Removal of the Pine Overstory (POSTER)

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Ground beetles (Carabidae) are often used as bioindicators in land-use studies because they are (1) diverse, (2) abundant, (3) well known taxonomically, and (4) appear highly sensitive to habitat change. In 1996, we initiated a study on the Huron-Manistee National Forests in Newaygo County, Michigan, to document changes in the carabid community structure as a result of harvesting the overstory red pine stand on more than 140 acres. Prior to planting these sites with red pine seedlings in the 1940s, they were open dry sand prairies. Surrounding the harvested sites were natural stands of white pine and oak as well as natural dry sand prairies.

Keywords: Ground beetles, red pine, white pine, Michigan, sand prairies, carabid, pine overstory
