Our aims were: (1) to study the shape of the species richness–elevation and abundance–elevation relationships (SRER and AER, respectively) in epigaeic mountain beetles; and (2) to analyse how richness and abundance of the beetles vary across the full gradient and within the forests and steppes in association with environmental variables representing productivity, thermal limitation, water–energy dynamics, environmental heterogeneity and soil characteristics.

Keywords: Biogeographical transition; Coleoptera; diversity; hump‐shaped pattern; productivity; soil suitability
