Abstract

In recent years, great advances have been made in our knowledge of the ecology, evolutionary biology, biogeography and management of saproxylic insects and their dead wood habitat. There is now a greater level of awareness of the need to cater to their requirements in today’s managed forest landscapes. However, having raised the profile of saproxylic insects, researchers are now being called upon to translate knowledge gains into management principles. This throws up new research challenges, many of which can only be addressed through adaptive management. This paper outlines and prioritises some of those challenges.
