In grazed ecosystems, coprophagous beetles are known to play an important role in nutrient cycling, but interactions between species identity and dung beetle abundance on soil processes remain unclear. We conducted an outdoor mesocosm experiment to investigate the effects of three dung beetle species at four levels of abundance on dung incorporatio...
Article
By degrading the dung of livestock that graze on pastures, coprophilous arthropods accelerate the cycling of nutrients to maintain pasture quality. Many veterinary medicinal products (VMPs), such as ivermectin (IVM), are excreted unchanged in the dung of treated livestock. These residues can be insecticidal and may reduce the function (i.e., dung-d...
