Are Current Management Recommendations for Conserving Saproxylic Invertebrates Effective? (systematic review)

What is the aim of the review?
To systematically collate and synthesise published and unpublished evidence in order to address the question: “Are current management recommendations for conserving saproxylic invertebrates effective?” Within this, to investigate whether biotic and abiotic factors, such as those listed below, can be manipulated through site-based management in order to benefit saproxylic fauna:

  • Provision of supplementary dead and decaying wood.
  • Provision of simulated dead and decaying wood.
  • Promotion of decay and cavities in younger trees.
  • The microclimate surrounding dead and decaying wood (e.g., altering the degree of sun-exposure).
