  1. 1. How do saproxylic beetles differ in spruce (Picea abies) forests of different age? : A comparison between nature reserves and production forests, in county of Östergötland.

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Rebecca Petersen; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Today, old growth forests are continuously decreasing, due to deforestation, threatening species to extinction. Species dependent on dead wood, different stages of decaying wood, large trees, and forest cover continuity have a particularly high risk of extinction, such as saproxylic beetle species. READ MORE

  2. 2. Granstubbar som substrat för vedlevande skalbaggar : en jämförelse av faunan i gallringsstubbar och slutavverkningsstubbar

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Samuel Persson; [2020]
    Keywords : granstubbar; vedlevande skalbaggar; artrikedom; abundans; artsammansättning; gallring; slutavverkning; stubbrytning;

    Abstract : I Sverige finns det ca 1 300 skalbaggsarter som är beroende av död ved och gamla träd i olika former. Många av dessa arter har minskat i samband med att våra skogar förändrats och idag är ca 435 av arterna upptagna på den svenska nationella rödlistan. READ MORE

  3. 3. The importance of Ecoparks for saproxylic beetles : a study on general ecological hypotheses in differently managed landscapes

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Author : Albin Larsson Ekström; [2020]
    Keywords : deadwood; saproxylic beetles; habitat amount hypothesis; habitat heterogeneity hypothesis; landscape ecology; landscape intermediate complexity hypothesis;

    Abstract : Current forestry practices have led to a decline of deadwood availability in Swedish forests. Even though deadwood has increased somewhat in Swedish forests in later years, it is still far from estimated deadwood threshold levels and of those found in natural systems. This has in turn led to a decline in species associated with deadwood e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Saproxylic beetles in Populus tremula fauna depots - how do you construct the best depot?

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Simon Selberg; [2019]
    Keywords : aspen; populus; tremula; saproxylic; beetle; fauna; depot; species; richness; abundance; diversity; cwd; course; woody; debris; forest; asp; populus; tremula; vedlevande; skalbagge; fauna; depå; art; mångfald; diversitet; död; ved; cwd; skog;

    Abstract : The biodiversity of saproxylic organisms and in the case of this study, saproxylic beetles, is dependent on the amount and quality of course woody debris (CWD) in the environment. Over the past decades the quantity of CWD in Swedish forests has increased, yet the quality has decreased, forests are managed and exploited, and old-growth forests are rarer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effect of distance to urban areas on saproxylic beetles in urban forests

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Avdelningen för biologi

    Author : Jeffery Marker; [2019]
    Keywords : saproxylic; beetles; richness; abundance; urban forests; forest management;

    Abstract : Urban forests play key roles in animal and plant biodiversity and provide important ecosystem services.  Habitat fragmentation and expanding urbanization threaten biodiversity in and around urban areas.  Saproxylic beetles can act as bioindicators of forest health and their diversity may help to explain and define urban-forest edge effects.
