  • Abstract Knowledge of the insect communities inhabiting different types of dead wood, and their responses to variation in its availability, is important in assessing the potential ecological impacts of changes in the quality and quantity of coarse woody debris (CWD) that may result from forest management activities. We collected all Diptera, Hymenoptera, and Coleoptera emerging from four decay classes of pine (Pinus strobus, P. resinosa, P. banksiana) logs collected from 22 sites within… CONTINUE READING
