    Description

    Greentree reservoirs are bottomland hardwood forests that are artificially flooded during fall/winter to provide habitat and food for wintering waterfowl. Research has indicated that thispractice could negatively impact bottomland hardwood stands leading to decreases in mast production, tree vigor and growth, and regeneration. Outside of waterfowl and aquatic macroinvertebrates, little research has been conducted regarding the effects this management practice has on other faunal elements. In this study, we examined longhorned beetle diversity and abundance in greentree reservoirs and naturally-flooded bottomland hardwood stands in Mississippi. Longhorned beetle species composition and levels of abundance were similar among greentree reservoir and naturally-flooded stands. Examination of species assemblages collected from greentree reservoirs did not reveal the presence of large numbers of longhorned beetles known to attack healthy and/or stressed trees. The largest number of species and individuals collected from all study sites were ones with associations with dead woody material.
