Necrophilous Insect Dynamics at Small Vertebrate Carrion in a Temperate Eucalypt Woodland

Barton, Philip; Evans, Maldwyn; Pechal, Jennifer L.; Benbow, M. Eric

Description

Insects associated with carrion are critical to the decomposition process and nutrient cycling in ecosystems. Yet the communities of insects associated with carrion vary between locations, and detailed case studies are necessary for identifying differences and similarities among contrasting habitats. In this study, we examined temporal changes in the crawling insect community collected from rabbit carcasses placed in contrasting grassland and tree habitats in southeastern Australia. We...[Show more]
