- ... Commercial forestry increasingly aims at both optimizing timber production and maintaining species diversity. To maintain the diversity of the species-rich group of wood-inhabiting fungi, effective forest conservation concepts that include the enrichment of dead wood in commercial forests are required. However, which type of dead wood should be enriched in which type of forest stand (coniferous or ...

- ... As dead wood is ephemeral, saproxylic insect species must be able to effectively locate new resources via, e.g. olfactory cues. Although saproxylic flat bugs feed on fungal mycelia, published evidence points to their use of dead wood‐specific volatile cues rather than fungal‐specific cues for long‐distance orientation towards new habitat patches. To evaluate which olfactory cues saproxylic flat bu ...
