Carabid Assemblages (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in a Rotation of Three Different Crops in Southern Alberta, Canada: A Comparison of Sustainable and Conventional FarmingDownload
Carabids were sampled in 2000 (pretreatment year) and 2003-2005 in experimental plots in southern Alberta. Canada, after a rotation of beans, and potato under sustainable and conventional farming practices. Each phase of the rotation was present in every year. Crop type had stronger effect than...
Our objective was to assess the potential of carabid beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as effective bioindicators of the effects of forest management at a Canadian national scale. We present a comparison of carabid beetle assemblages reported from large-scale Studies across Canada. Based on the...
High levels of green-tree retention are required to preserve ground beetle biodiversity in boreal mixedwood forestsDownload
Recovery of biodiversity and other ecosystem functions to pre-disturbance levels is a central goal of natural disturbance-based approaches to ecosystem management. In boreal mixedwood forests, green-tree retention has been proposed as an alternative approach to traditional clearcutting that may...
Integrated pest management of Sitona lineatus L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in crops of Pisum sativum L. (Fabales: Fabaceae) in Western CanadaDownload
Sitona lineatus L. (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) is a pest of Pisum sativum L. (Fabales: Fabaceae) and managing it is a challenge because of its fecundity, migratory behavior and concealed larval habitat. Potential components of an integrated pest management program for S. lineatus were...
