    Description

    The XYLOBIOS project aims to study patterns, roles and determinants of saproxylic diversity (i.e., species richness and abundance of organisms which are dependent upon the dead or dying wood of moribund or dead trees, or upon the presence of other saproxylics) found in Belgian beech Fagus sylvatica and oak Quercus spp. forests. The project originates from recent international recommendations to retard loss of species and link biodiversity with ecosystem functioning. Main objectives, study sites and sampling methods are briefly described.
