Effects of accelerated succession on the community of saproxylic beetles

We sampled saproxylic beetle composition in the Forest Accelerated Succession Experiment (FASET) and the Ameriflux tower. The former is a boreal forest where fist level succession trees have been girdled and the latter is an undisturbed forest. Our project looks to compare saproxylic beetle community between the two forests. Also we will compare beetle composition between our survey and a first survey done in 2008.
