dc.description.abstractThe primary objective of this study was to examine the effects of alternative vegetation management on epigeal insects, Coleoptera, Carabidae, and non-insectan arthropods. This study, which is a component of the Fallingsnow Ecosystem Project, 60km southwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario, utilized roofed pitfall traps containing a saline preservative. Four blocks were treated with four vegetation management alternatives including a manual brushsaw treatment, a mechanized treatment (Silvana Selective-Ford Versatile cleaning machine), and two herbicides (Vision [a.i. glyphosate] and Release [a.i. triclopyr]). In addition, a Control (untreated) plot was located within each block. All insects and non-insectan arthropods were identified to the order level.
