A review of the pollinators associated with decaying wood, old trees and tree wounds in Great Britain
A provisional listing of over 320 species of British flower-visiting insects (mostly Coleoptera, Diptera and aculeate Hymenoptera) that are fully or substantially reliant on old trees, dead wood, tree wounds and other timber for larval development. The report summarises the ecology (including larval biology and floral preferences), distribution, status and broad conservation requirements for most species. The report also explains in more general terms the conservation requirements for this assemblage as a whole and is liberally furnished with photographs of the insects and their key habitats.
