Trapping beetles in boreal coniferous forest - how many species do we miss ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Beetles have been collected in the general area of the Oulanka National Park in eastern Finland just south of the Arctic Circle for more than 70 years. A combination of pitfall and flight intercept traps is fairly effective, but the use of a car-net can not be avoided if a result approaching the 90 % mark is needed. The most disturbing result is that even massive trapping schemes are not useful in revealing the presence of genuinely threatened species. Thus the emphasis should be in searching and securing optimal habitats of threatened species, not in finding the beetles at every location
