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...
Abstract: Riparian ecotones at lakeshore edges are prominent features on the heterogeneous boreal forest landscape. We introduce a new method (the critical values approach): which incorporates inherent variability in interior forest, to quantify distance of edge influence at lakeshore forest...
