[ID: 314] The influence of forest management on insect diversity

PI: Adam Ekholm

Theory suggests that forest managed with selection systems should hold a more diverse community of insects and thereby also be less vulnerable to pest outbreaks, and in this project we will study the effect of forest management on insect diversity. We intend to place malaise and window traps in nine uneven-aged Picea abies stands that have been randomly subjected to one of three treatments.
