Description: In August 2004, the city of Brisbane, Australia, was host to one of the largest recent gatherings of the world’s entomologists. The 22nd International Congress of Entomology featured a multitude of symposia covering a wide range of entomology-related topics. This general technical report is based on papers presented on one such symposium, “Insect Biodiversity and Dead Wood.” It features contributions from around the world. Dead wood is anything but dead. It is the lifeblood of an intricate web of life in which insects feature prominently. The papers presented here consider both the basic ecology and evolutionary history of saproxylic (dead-wood dependent) insects and how such insects can be affected by management of the forests where most species live. Past management has not always been beneficial to saproxylic insects and in some parts of the world has harmed them greatly. With continued quality research, however, there is some prospect that future land management will be more accommodating to saproxylic insects.

Keywords: Arthropod diversity, coarse woody debris, fossil insects, funnel web spider, invertebrate conservation, New Forestry, saproxylic insects
