HABITAT PREFERENCES OF THE FOREST DUNG BEETLE ANOPLOTRUPES STERCOROSUS (SCRIBA, 1791) (COLEOPTERA: GEOTRUPIDAE) IN THE BIAłOWIEżA FOREST

Keywords: Geotrupidae, Anoplotrupes stercorosus, forest habitat type, Białowieża Forest
Abstract:

 

The aim of the study was to discover habitat preferences of the forest dung beetle Anoplotrupes stercorosus (Scriba, 1791). Beetle specimens were collected using modified Barber traps in the Białowieża Forest, in 1999. In total, 14980 specimens of the forest dung beetle were collected. According to the obtained results, the optimal habitat types of the beetle in question included fresh broadleaved forest, fresh mixed broadleaved forest, fresh mixed coniferous forest, moist broadleaved forest and fresh coniferous forest. It was discovered that the beetle in question was more abundant in fresh forest habitats than in moist and boggy forest habitats or in alder swamp forests.
