Promoting ecosystem and human health in urban areas using Green Infrastructure: A literature review
Europe is a highly urbanised continent. The consequent loss and degradation of urban and peri-urban green space could adversely affect ecosystems as well as human health and well-being. The aim ofExpand

Effects of Clear-Cut Harvesting on Boreal Ground-Beetle Assemblages (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in Western Canada
We compared pitfall catches from four types of mature lodgepole pine—white spruce forest with those from five age classes of young forest regenerating subsequent to clear-cutting. Ground beetles wereExpand

Ecology and urban planning
Urban areas harbour diverse nature ranging from semi-natural habitats to wastelands, parks and other highly human-influenced biotopes with their associated species assemblages. Maintenance of thisExpand

Ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as bioindicators
One of the primary goals of research on bioindicators is to identifyspecies or other taxonomic units that would reliably indicate disturbances inthe environment, and reflect the responses of otherExpand

Invertebrates and Boreal Forest Management
Logging has ecological effects on invertebrates in Fennoscandian boreal forest. Especially affected are species associated with micro-habitats of natural old-growth forest, such as coarse woodyExpand

Boreal carabid-beetle (Coleoptera, Carabidae) assemblages along the clear-cut originated succession gradient
We examined the occurrence of carabid beetles along a forest successiongradient in central Finland (forest age classes: 5, 10, 20, 30 and 60years since clear-cutting). Species richness of carabidsExpand

Sampling carabid assemblages with pitfall traps: The madness and the method
We describe a litter-washing technique for collecting quantitative samples of ground-beetles (Carabidae), and compare the results with those from liner extraction by Tullgren funnels and pitfallExpand

Carabid beetles in fragments of coniferous forest
We compared samples of carabid beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) from fifteen forest fragments in a suburban-agricultural setting with catches from a nearby large contiguous forest in Espoo, southernExpand

Carabid beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) and habitat fragmentation: a review
I review the effects of habitat fragmentation on carabid beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) and examine whether the taxon could be used as an indicator of fragmentation. Related to this, I study theExpand
