Hollow oaks and beetle conservation: the significance of the surroundings

  title={Hollow oaks and beetle conservation: the significance of the surroundings},
  author={Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson and Olav Skarpaas and Frode \Odegaard},
  journal={Biodiversity and Conservation},
In this study we investigated hollow oaks (Quercus robur, Q. petrea) situated in open landscapes and in forests in Norway in northern Europe, and compared their importance for rare and threatened beetles (Coleoptera). Old, hollow oak trees, both in parks and in forests, were extremely rich in red-listed beetles, and hosted a high proportion of threatened species. The proportion of oak associated species and the mean number of red-listed beetle species per tree was similar in the two site types… CONTINUE READING
