Title: Patterns of saproxylic beetle succession in loblolly pine.

Author: Ulyshen, Michael; Hanula, James;

Date: 2010

Source: Agricultural and Forest Entomology 12: 187-194

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Patterns of insect succession in dead wood remain unclear, particularly beyond the first several years of decay. In the present study, saproxylic beetles were sampled from loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) logs aged between 1 month and 9 years old using both emergence traps attached to logs in the field and rearing bags in the laboratory.

Keywords: Arthropods, biodiversity, coarse woody debris, coleoptera conservation, forest management, species turnover
