Salvage logging, edge effects and carabid beetles: connections to conservation and sustainable forest managementDownload
We used pitfall traps to study the effects of fire and salvage logging on distribution of carabid beetles over a forest disturbance gradient ranging from salvaged (naturally burned and subsequently harvested) to unsalvaged (naturally burned and left standing). Significantly more carabids were...
Impacts of clear-cut harvesting on carabid beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae) assemblages of aspen dominated forests in central AlbertaDownload
Disturbances, both natural and those related to human activity, reset succession in boreal ecosystems, and affect forest biodiversity. The link between forest harvesting and biodiversity is of considerable conservation concern. In this thesis, I investigate the impacts of clear-cut harvesting on...
Effects of crop rotation and genetically modified herbicide-tolerant corn on ground beetle diversity, community structure and activity densityDownload
Ground beetles (Coleoptera. Carabidae) were sampled in conventional and genetically modified herbicide-tolerant (GM HT) corn, Zea mays L. (Poaceae), planted under rotation with canola, Brassica L. (Brassicaceae), or continuously cropped corn to investigate the influence of corn variety and...
Conservation of forest-dwelling arthropod species: simultaneous management of many small and heterogeneous risksDownload
The Canadian insect fauna is too inadequately Understood to support well-informed assessments about its conservation status: however, the foregoing collection of synthetic papers illustrates potential threats front industrial forestry. Loss of forest species and dramatic changes in forest insect...
