英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Research on changes in biodiversity due to the abandonment of forestry is important in understanding the role of reserves in conservation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether changes have occurred in species richness, abundance and composition of ground, longhorn and bark beetles due to habitat changes as a result of the cessation of forest management. We surveyed ten managed and ten abandoned forest plots in two watersheds located in the north-eastern Italian alpine region, which share a common history of use, climate regimes, stand structure and topography. Ground beetles, and longhorn and bark beetles were collected with pitfall and flight-intercept window traps, respectively, from May to mid-October 2010. The three beetle taxa responded differently to...
