The effects of windthrow on forest insect communities: a literature review
This paper reviews the effects that windstorm-induced drastic changes (micro-climate, soil, vegetation, and ground structural heterogeneity) have on forest insect communities. In the current contextExpand

Deadwood as a surrogate for forest biodiversity: Meta-analysis of correlations between deadwood volume and species richness of saproxylic organisms
Abstract Deadwood is an important component of forest ecosystems on which many forest dwelling species depend. Deadwood volume is therefore widely used as an indicator of forest biodiversity, notablyExpand

Short-term effect of windstorm disturbance on saproxylic beetles in broadleaved temperate forests: Part II. Effects of gap size and gap isolation
Abstract The short-term effect of windthrow gap size and isolation for saproxylic beetle abundance, species richness and assemblage composition was studied in managed oak-hornbeam forest in France.Expand

Current near-to-nature forest management effects on functional trait composition of saproxylic beetles in beech forests.
With the aim of wood production with negligible negative effects on biodiversity and ecosystem processes, a silvicultural practice of selective logging with natural regeneration has been implementedExpand

Increasing temperature may compensate for lower amounts of dead wood in driving richness of saproxylic beetles
Early View (EV): 1-EVfor many species, such as old, dead, or dying trees, are signif-icantly reduced (Whitehouse 2006). This lack of dead-wood resources has been identified as a major weakness of theExpand

Effects of fuelwood harvesting on biodiversity - a review focused on the situation in Europe.
A continually increasing demand for energy and concerns about climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and peak oil have prompted countries to develop policies that promote renewable energy includingExpand

Distance from forest edge affects bee pollinators in oilseed rape fields
Wild pollinators have been shown to enhance the pollination of Brassica napus (oilseed rape) and thus increase its market value. Several studies have previously shown that pollination services areExpand

Exploring the last biotic frontier : Are temperate forest canopies special for saproxylic beetles?
Abstract Conserving saproxylic beetles in temperate forests will require a better understanding of habitat requirements. So far, quantitative community studies have rarely considered their verticalExpand

Effect of deadwood position on saproxylic beetles in temperate forests and conservation interest of oak snags
1. Intensive forestry has drastically reduced the volume of standing deadwood, even more than total deadwood volume. It has been demonstrated in boreal forests that snags have a high conservationExpand

In search of the best local habitat drivers for saproxylic beetle diversity in temperate deciduous forests
Deadwood-associated species are increasingly targeted in forest biodiversity conservation. In order to improve structural biodiversity indicators and sustainable management guidelines, we need toExpand
