Keystone coleopterans? Colonization by wood-feeding elmids of experimentally immersed woods in south-eastern Australia

McKie, B. G. L.; Cranston, Peter


Macroinvertebrates on immersed woods in streams in montane south-eastern Australia respond to differences in wood taxa, according to a 4-month colonization study of experimentally positioned sticks. Xylophagous elmids (Coleoptera : Elmidae) strongly preferred local native Eucalyptus over other types of wood including non-native softer timbers (Pinus and Alnus).
