Insect biodiversity meets ecosystem function: differential effects of habitat and insects on carrion decomposition

Barton, Philip; Evans, Maldwyn


1. Ecological processes are maintained in different environments by different species performing similar functional roles. Yet, little is known about the role of the environment in shaping insect biodiversity associated with a process that is ephemeral and patchy. 2. In this study, the mass loss of carrion in response to contrasting habitat types (grassland or tree) was quantified experimentally, as well as the presence, diversity and composition of insect assemblages. Differences in insect...[Show more]
