Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. The present work includes a brief compilation on the taxonomic history of the family and the first expeditions to Chile. In addition, knowledge of carabid diversity in Chile is compared with. Heavy metals in carabids ColeopteraCarabidae. Full Text Available Carabid beetles ColeopteraCarabidae are one of the most studied soil groups in relation to heavy metal HM accumulation and use for bioindication of environmental pollution.

Accumulation of Zn and Cu in carabid beetles was species- sex- and trophic group-specific. No differences were found in HM contents between omnivorous and carnivorous species. The use familua carabid beetles as indicators of HM accumulation appears to be rather limited.

Using Malaise traps to sample ground beetles Coleoptera: Pitfall traps provide an easy and inexpensive way to sample ground-dwelling arthropods Spence and Niemela ; Spence et al. Despite the popularity of this trapping technique, pitfall traps have many disadvantages Ground beetles of the Ukraine ColeopteraCarabidae.

A review of the ground beetles of the Ukrainian fauna is given.

Almost species from genera of Carabidae are known to occur in the Ukraine. Approximately species of ground beetles are registered in the Carpathian region. No less than species of ground beetles are found in the forest zone.

familua Approximately species of Carabidae present in the forest-steppe zone are relatively similar in species composition to those in the forest territories. Some species of Carabidae are inhabitants of the steppe zone. Representatives of many other regions of heterogeneous biotopes such as forest, semi desert, intrazonal, etc. The fauna of Carabidae ca. Carabdiae fauna of the Crimean mountains contains about species. Conservation measures for the Carabidae are discussed.

Full Text Available A review of the ground beetles of the Ukrainian fauna is given. Ground beetles ColeopteraCarabidae agrocenoses of spring and winter wheat. The focus of the present study is on synecological characteristics and in some extent on the impact of agricultural practise on the population and seasonal dynamics of the most important representatives of ground beetles.

This paper precedes the following article aimed to contents of heavy metals in ground beetles. Study on the genus Daptus ground-beetles Coleoptera: Carabidae is reported for the first time from Korea, based on the Daptus vittatus Fischer von Waldheim from Incheon, Korea.

Redescription of the species and illustrations of diagnostic characteristics, including genitalia characteristics of famila sexes, are provided. Adult ground beetles Coleoptera: Twenty species were documented based on a total sample of 6, specimens collected during and Using malaise traps to sample ground beetles Coleoptera: Despite the popularity of this trapping technique, pitfall traps have many disadvantages. For example, they often fail to collect both small Spence and Niemela and trap-shy species Benesteventually deplete the local carabid population Digweed et al.

Further complications arise from seasonal patterns of movement among the beetles themselves Maelfait and Desenderas well darabidae numerous climatic factors, differences in plant cover, and variable surface conditions Adis Because of these limitations, pitfall trap data give an incomplete picture of the carabid community and should be interpreted carefully. Additional methods, such as use of Berlese funnels and litter washing Spence and Niemelacollection from lights Usis and MacLeanand deployment of flight intercept devices Liebherr and Mahar ; Paarmann and Storkshould be incorporated in surveys to better ascertain the species composition and relative numbers of ground beetles.


Flight intercept devices, like pitfall traps, have the advantage of being easy to use and replicate, but their value to carabid surveys is largely unknown.

Here we demonstrate the effectiveness of Malaise traps for sampling ground beetles in a bottomland hardwood forest. Using malaise traps to sample ground beetles Coleoptera. What do we know about winter active ground beetles ColeopteraCarabidae in Central and Northern Europe? In total 73 winter active species are listed, based on literature and own observations. Ground beetles are among the three most numerous Coleoptera families active during the autumn to spring period.


The winter community of Carabidae is composed both of larvae mainly autumn breeding species and adults, as well as of epigeic species and those inhabiting tree trunks. Supranivean fauna is characterized by lower species diversity than the subnivean fauna.

The activity of ground beetles decreases in late autumn, is lowest during mid-winter and increases in early spring. Carabidae are noted as an important food source in the diet of insectivorous mammals. They are also predators, hunting small winter active invertebrates. This paper summarizes the current knowledge on winter active Carabidae in Central and Northern Europe. New faunistic records of ground beetles ColeopteraCarabidae from Hormozgan province, Iran.

Full Text Available This paper presents the results of a faunal study of ground beetles Coleoptera: Carabidae from Hormozgan province in southern Iran, which was carried out from winter to winter A total of 30 species belonging to 18 genera were collected and identified. Two species — Calodromius mayeti and Elaphropus Tachyura biblis — are reported from Iran for the first time; in addition, the occurrence of several species in Iran was confirmed.

Significantly higher Carabid beetle Coleoptera: Carabidae catch in conventionally than in organically managed Christmas tree plantations. Carabid beetles play an important role as consumers of pest organisms in forestry and agriculture.

Application of pesticides may negatively affect abundance and activity of carabid beetles, thus reducing their potential beneficial effect.

We investigated how abundance and diversity of pitfall We recorded significantly higher numbers of carabid beetle specimens and species at conventionally carabidse at organically An up-to-date checklist of the ground beetles of Iran is presented. Altogether species and subspecies in genera belonging to 26 subfamilies of Carabidae are reported; 25 taxa are recorded for Iran for the fist time. New localities are listed and some previous distributional records are discussed.

Pterostichinae from south-central Turkey. Fsmilia, Pterostichinae, CarabidaeTurkey. This publication is the second part of a taxonomic and geographical treatment of the Pterostichinae of south- central Turkey, with gamilia focus on sites in the province of.

Feeding habits of Carabidae Coleoptera associated with herbaceous plants and the phenology of coloured cotton. Full Text Available The carabids Coleoptera: Carabidae are recognized as polyphagous predators and important natural enemies of insect pests.

Carsbidae, little is known about the feeding habits of these beetles. In this work, we determine the types of food content in the digestive tracts of nine species of Carabidae associated with afmilia plants and different growth stages of coloured cotton. The food contents were evaluated for beetles associated with the coloured cotton cv. BRS verde, Gossypium hirsutum L. The digestive tract analysis indicated various types of diets and related arthropods for Abaris basistriata, Galerita brasiliensis, Scarites sp.


The carabids were considered to be polyphagous predators, feeding on different types of prey. Trechini is described and illustrated from the Euboia Evvia island eastern Greece. Its putative position amongst the trechines of the Duvalius phyletic lineage is discussed. Data on the distribution and habitat of this new, insular and unexpected taxon are also provided. Considering the earlier literature data the total number of carabid species known from the county is Carabus variolosus Fabricius, is a Natura species, Pterostichus bielzii Fuss, is a species endemic to the Western Apuseni Mountains.

Further rare species from the area: Habitat preferences of ground beetle Coleoptera: Carabidae species in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota.

Carabidae are a major component of terrestrial invertebrate communities and have been used as bioindicators of habitat change and disturbance. The Black Hills of South Dakota is a small area with a high biodiversity, but the ground beetles of this region are little studied. The habitat preferences of ground beetles in the Black Hills are unknown, and baseline data must be collected if these beetles are to be used in the future as bioindicators.

Carabidae were collected from pitfall traps at two sites in each of five kinds of habitats grassland, bur oak-ironwood forests, ponderosa pine-common juniper forests, aspen-pine forests, and a spruce forest from which habitat structure characteristics and plant abundance data also were collected. In total, 27 species of ground beetles were identified. Although some species, such as Dicaelus sculptilis Say were found in most habitats, other species showed distinct habitat preferences: Poecilus lucublandus Say preferred oak forests, Pasimachus elongatus LeConte preferred grasslands, and Calathus ingratus Dejean preferred high-elevation aspen-pine forests.

Pterostichus adstrictus Escholtz was found only in woodlands, and Carabus taedatus Say strictly in higher elevation over 1, m aspen or coniferous woods, and may represent relict populations of boreal species. Elevation, exposure to sunlight, and cover of woody plants strongly influence the structure of carabid communities in the Black Hills. Ecology and behavior of ground beetles Coleoptera: The ground beetles from the speciose beetle family Carabidae and, since their emergence in the Tertiary, have populated all habitats except deserts.

Our knowledge about carabids is biased toward species living in north-temperate regions. Most carabids are predatory, consume a wide range of food types, and experience food shortages in the field. Feeding on both plant and animal material and scavenging are probably more significant than currently acknowledged.

The most important mortality sources are abiotic factors and predators; pathogens and parasites can be important for some developmental stages. Although competition among larvae and adults does occur, the importance of competition as a community organization is not proven.
