The dispersal rate of a beetle, Osmoderma eremita, living in tree hollows

  title={The dispersal rate of a beetle, Osmoderma eremita, living in tree hollows},
  author={Thomas Ranius and Jonas Hedin},
The dispersal of an endangered beetle, Osmoderma eremita, that lives in tree hollows, was studied by mark-release-recapture with pitfall traps. As only a small proportion of all dispersals is observed by this method, a simulation model was constructed to estimate the dispersal rate per individual. The model results suggest that 15% of the adults leave the original tree for another hollow tree, and consequently most individuals remain in the same tree throughout their entire life. This suggests… CONTINUE READING
