Which saproxylic beetles are colonizing log piles constructed for stag beetles (Lucanus cervus) in south-eastern Sweden?
My name is Claud Youssif and I am a Ecology and the Environment student at Linköping University. I have conducted surveys on log piles constructed for stag beetles (Lucanus cervus) in a follow-up to study how successful they have been as part of a project to improve the status of saproxylic beetles. The aim was to see which variables that affect species richness, abundance and species composition. It was of interest to see which saproxylic beetles that have colonized the log piles as well.
