Promoting ecosystem and human health in urban areas using Green Infrastructure: A literature review
Effects of Clear-Cut Harvesting on Boreal Ground-Beetle Assemblages (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in Western Canada
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 are compared, suggesting that there is a general pattern of recovery after logging.
Ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) as bioindicators
It is concluded that carabids are useful bioindicators, but as crucial understanding of their relationship with others species is incomplete, they should be used with caution.

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 this…

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 woody…
Boreal carabid-beetle (Coleoptera, Carabidae) assemblages along the clear-cut originated succession gradient
It is recommended that, while harvesting timber, connectivity between mature stands is ensured, mature stands are maintained close to each other and the matrix quality is improved for forest species by green tree retention.
SAMPLING CARABID ASSEMBLAGES WITH PITFALL TRAPS: THE MADNESS AND THE METHOD
Ecological studies of carabid populations and assemblages using pitfall traps may be improved if they are both designed and interpreted in light of the biology of the group and with regard to the deficiencies of pitfall trapping.
Carabid beetles in fragments of coniferous forest
The results indicate that in order to preserve the integrity of forest arthropod faunas in urban areas it is essential to leave large, continuous forest tracts untouched to preserve specialist species and forest species assemblages.
Northern forestry and carabids: the case for concern about old-growth species
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the timber-farming activities of the Northern Forest Service in Alberta.
