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 gall types per leaf against distance from road: LG01 (a), LG03 (b), LG04 (c), LG05 (d), and LG06 (e). The line was fitted by generalized additive models with a third-order polynomial smoothing spline. High quality figures are available online.

f04_01: Scatterplots of number of different leaf gall types per leaf against distance from road: LG01 (a), LG03 (b), LG04 (c), LG05 (d), and LG06 (e). 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 gallers, the number of LG01 per leaf peaked at about 2 m and 5.5 m from the road, which was similar to the pattern of total gall numbers. The number of LG03 per leaf peaked 5.5 m from the road. The number of LG04 and LG06 per leaf was very low at all distance classes, but LG04 numbers increased after 3.5 m from road, and LG06 numbers dropped from 0.5 m from road. The number of LG05 per leaf peaked about 1.5 m from the road and then dropped. Patterns of every leaf gall type were consistent to the variations of their large values (Figure 4).
