Article
The natural composition of forests has undergone significant changes over recent centuries. A closer-to-natural tree species composition has long been perceived as key to a high biodiversity. We investigated the impact on communities of click beetles (Elateridae) caused by changes in the tree species composition of spruce monocultures compared to r...

International trade in plants and climate change are two of the main factors causing damaging tree pests (i.e. fungi and insects) to spread into new areas. To mitigate these risks, a large-scale assessment of tree-associated fungi and insects is needed. We present records of endophytic fungi and insects in twigs of 17 angiosperm and gymnosperm gene...

The springtail, Tetrodontophora bielanensis, dwells in the litter and upper soil layers. This arthropod mainly inhabits humid litter and soil and prefers a cold climate. We determined the main factors influencing this springtail in forests at the landscape level in Krkonoše and site level in Orlické hory in the Czech Republic. We used passive trunk...
Article
Forest plantations represent a globally important land use, and their growth is expected to triple by the end of the century. Therefore, they could represent an important habitat remnant to support the survival of species. We measured the impact of forest plantations on biodiversity with a focus on eight groups of biota including saproxylic and gro...

Plantation forests with timber production as the major function are highly fragmented and disturbed regarding the tree species composition and stand area. Their closed canopies also have different microclimatic conditions compared to better studied conservation areas. We studied three beetle families (click, longhorn and rove beetles) with differen...

Most European forests have been converted into forest plantations that are managed for timber production. The main goal of this paper was to determine the difference between mature native sessile oak ( Quercus petraea ) stands and non-indigenous Norway spruce ( Picea abies ) plantations, with respect to communities of Athous click beetles in approx...

The project is based on research on saproxylic organisms that are mostly neglected by the mainstream science or their relationship to the dead wood is rather unknown. Examples are moths, ants, landsnails, bats etc.
