Role of the Forest Entomofauna in Successional Processes

  • V. M. Yanovskii
Article

Abstract

Participation of the entomofauna in the succession of forest biogeocenoses is analyzed. In stable ecosystems, insects serve as a mechanism providing for long-term ecological stability. In unstable ecosystems, their activities are essentially negative and cause ecosystem degradation.

Key words
