Beetles inhabiting dead wood in managed forest - comparison of spruce and oak

Forstwissenschaftliches Centralblatt 113(3/4): 245-255
Beetles inhabiting dead wood in managed forest - comparison of spruce and oak
Studies were made of the xylobiont beetles inhabiting the types of deadwood typically found in commercial forests managed in a near-natural way. The stands examined were mainly oak or mainly Norway spruce near Munich. Data are presented on the species and numbers of beetles in small and large deadwood and in stumps. Even with only 5-10 msuperscript 3 deadwood per hectare, these forests can provide an adequate environment for many deadwood beetles, including species of faunistic importance.
