Abstract:

• The community composition of early-arriving saproxylic beetles on 80 standing and recently deceased Scots pine trees (Pinus sylvestris L.) was examined.

• In total, 34 species of saproxylic beetles were found, comprising at least four well-defined groups of species identified by correspondence analysis.

• Bark thickness, trunk/branch diameter and height above ground significantly affected community composition, with bark thickness being the most important factor.

• Overall, 13.7% of the variance in species composition was explained by section of the tree that was sampled, a variable that encompasses the three aforementioned parameters.
