Effects of roads on Castanopsis carlesii seedlings and their leaf herbivory in a subtropical forest in China.

Dai XH, Xu JS, Cai LR - J. Insect Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: These results might indicate that old seedlings were fewer and survival rate of seedlings was lower in forest interiors.However, both leaf miners and leaf gallers decreased in general from the road to the interior forest.There were interspecific differences in the effects of roads on leaf miner species and leaf galler species.

Scatterplots of number of different leaf mine types per leaf against distance from road: LM01 (a), LM03 (b), LM06 (c), and LM09 (d). The line was fitted by generalized additive models with a third-order polynomial smoothing spline. High quality figures are available online.

f03_01: Scatterplots of number of different leaf mine types per leaf against distance from road: LM01 (a), LM03 (b), LM06 (c), and LM09 (d). The line was fitted by generalized additive models with a third-order polynomial smoothing spline. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: For different leaf miners, numbers of LM01, LM03, and LM09 per leaf peaked 0.5 m from the road and then dropped. The number of LM06 per leaf was very low at all distance classes and increased linearly but slowly against the distances from the road. Patterns of every leaf mine type were consistent to the variations of their large values (Figure 3).
