Use of novel attraction compounds increases monitoring success of a rare beetle, Elater ferrugineus

Harvey DJ, Harvey H, Harvey RP, Kadej M, Hedenström E, Gange AC, et al. Use of novel attraction compounds increases monitoring success of a rare beetle, Elater ferrugineus. Insect Conservation and Diversity. 2017;10(2):161–70. The use of pheromones to determine distributions of rare saproxylic insects is an increasingly popular technique. Pheromones may, however, also be used […]
