Title: Litter-dwelling arthropod abundance peaks near coarse woody debris in loblolly pine forests of the southeastern United States

Author: Ulyshen, Michael D.; Hanula, James L.;

Date: 2009

Source: Florida Entomologist

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

litter-dwelling arthropod and other invertebrate taxa (e.g., Isopoda, Chilopoda, Diplopoda, Araneae, Pseudoscorpionida, Coleoptera, and Gastropoda) are more numerous near dead wood than away from it in the broad-leaved forests of Europe(Jabin et al. 2004; Topp et al. 2006a, 2006b; Kappes et al. 2006; Kappes 2006; Jabin et al. 2007) and New Zealand (Evans et al. 2003). Whether these trends hold true in pine-dominated forests, such as those in the southeastern United States, remains unknown. To address this question, we sampled litter dwelling arthropods adjacent (≤15 cm) to, and away (>2 m) from, logs at 3 stages of decay in loblolly pine (Pinus taedaL.) forests in South Carolina, USA.
