Saproxylic beetles (Coleoptera) using Populus in boreal aspen stands of western Canada: spatiotemporal variation and conservation of assemblages
Saproxylic beetles associated with Populus coarse woody material were sampled from two age classes of fire-origin aspen stands in north-central Alberta, Canada. A combination of rearings from woodExpand

Saproxylic insect assemblages in Canadian forests: diversity, ecology, and conservation1
Saproxylic insect assemblages inhabiting dead wood in Canadian forests are highly diverse and variable but quite poorly understood. Adequate assessment of these assemblages poses significantExpand

The effects of patch harvesting and site preparation on ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) in yellow birch dominated forests of southeastern Quebec
We studied the impacts of increasing size and number of gapcuts and the effects of site preparation by scarification on the species richness and community composition of ground beetles (Coleoptera:Expand

Edge influence of low-impact seismic lines for oil exploration on upland forest vegetation in northern Alberta (Canada)
Abstract Low-impact seismic (LIS) techniques were developed to reduce the environmental footprint of oil exploration. Though relatively narrow (∼2–3 m) and constructed with light-weight equipment,Expand

Comparison of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) and spiders (Araneae) collected in pan and pitfall traps
Pitfall trapping is a widely used sampling method for biodiversity-related research of ground-dwelling arthropods. The trap is a container, usually with a preservative, that is sunk into the groundExpand
