Diversity of Shrub-Dwelling Arthropods to Thinning of Young Douglas-Fir Forests in the Pacific Northwest, USA
Abstract:We examined an unthinned control stand and three different thinning intensities in 40- to 60-year-old Douglas-fir forests in western Oregon to assess the effects of thinning on the abundance, species richness, and diversity of shrub-dwelling arthropods.
