Temporal and spatial structure of carabid community in agricultural landscape of Dongbeiwang, Beijing



Temporal and spatial structure of carabid community in agricultural landscape of Dongbeiwang, Beijing



Ying Yong Sheng Tai Xue Bao 15(1): 85-90



From May to October 2000, the carabid beetles in the habitats of woodland, field margin and crop field in Dong-beiwang agroecosystem in Beijing were investigated by pitfall traps, and the temporal and spatial structure of carabid community was analyzed. The results indicated that the numbers of both carabid species and individuals were much higher in the field margin and woodland than in the crop field. Both dominant species and rare species tended to live in field margin and/or woodland. Field margins had a positive effect on the diversity and richness of carabid community in their adjacent crop fields. The modest disturbance (plowing in autumn) in the field margin was beneficial for the increase of the individual number of carabid community, and the treatments of irrigation, fertilization and straw return in field had no effects on both the individual and species number of carabid community. Furthermore, the threatening condition to some carabid species was discussed, based on the analysis of the temporal and spatial dynamics of carabid community.
