Biology and conservation ecology of selected saproxylic beetle species in Tasmania‘s southern forests
Two lines of research were followed to investigate the autecology of six species thought to be vulnerable to intensive forestry, indicating that in unharvested forest these beetles tend to preferentially occur in multi-aged stands with a mature eucalypt element, while their continued occurrence in forest regenerating following clearfelling may be explained by their occupation of ‗legacy‘ coarse woody debris derived from the previous unHarvested stand.
