About this book

In the last twenty years there has been a revolution in the scientific discovery of arthropod diversity and community structure in the canopy of tropical and temperate trees. This has resulted from the development of new techniques to access the canopy and to sample arthropods. This volume brings together, for the first time, a wide range of the most recent studies in canopy arthropods. Contents: methods for studying arthropods; community structure of coleoptera assemblages; community structure of non-coleopteran assemblages; the biology of canopy arthropods; the management and conservation of canopy arthropods.


Part 1 Methods of studying arthropods in trees: Sampling arthropods from tree-crowns by fogging with knockdown insecticide: lessons from studies of oak tree beetle assemblages in Richmond Park (U.K.), N.E. Stork and P.M. Hammon; A review of methods for sampling arthropods in tree canopies, Y. Basset et al; Advances in using the canopy fogging technique to collect living arthropods from tree crowns, W. Paarmann and K. Kerck; Knockdown efficiency of natural pyrethrum and survival rate or arthropods obtained by canopy fogging in Central Amazonia, J.Adis et al. Part 2 Community structure of coleopteran assemblage: Beetle species diversity and faunal similarity in Venezuelan rainforest tree canopies, J. G. Davies et al; Host-specificity and the effective specialization of tropical canopy beetles, N.A. Mawdsley and N.E. Stork; Determinants of species richness in assemblages of canopy arthropods in rainforests, r.L. Kitching et al; Canopy arthropods of coastal Sitka spruce trees on Vancouver island, British Columbia, Canada, N.N. Winchester; The beetle fauna of different tree species in forests of Rwanda and East zaire, T. Wagner; Tree crown beetles in context: a comparison of canopy and other ecotone assemblage in a lowland tropical forest in Sulawesi, P.M. Hammond et al; Patterns of beetle species diversity in castanopsis acuminatissima (fagaceae) trees studies with canopy fogging in midmontane New Guinea rainforest, A. Allison et al; Species-abundance and body-size relationships in insect herbivores associated with New Guinea forest trees, with particular reference to insect host-specificity, Y. Basset; Arthropod biodiversity in New Caledonian forest canopies: a global approach by fogging, E. Guilbert. Part 3 Community structure of non-coleopteran assemblages: Diversity in an Amazonian canopy grasshopper community in relation to resource partitioning and phylogeny, C. Amedegnato; Dipteral tree crown assemblages in a diverse southern temperate rainforest, R. Didham; Diversity and recolonisation dynamics of selected arthropod groups on different tree species in a lowland rainforest in sabah Malaysia, A. Floren and K.E. Linsenmair; Estimation or arboreal and terrestrial arthropod densities in the forest canopy as measured by insecticide smoking, H. Watanabe. Part 4 The biology of canopy arthropods: The ecology and behaviour of arboreal dung beetles in Borneo, A.J. Davis et al. (Part contents).
