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.

Relationship between leaf mine diversity with distance from road: Simpson's diversity D (a) and Shannon's diversity H (b). The line was fitted by generalized additive models with a third-order polynomial smoothing spline. High quality figures are available online.

f05_01: Relationship between leaf mine diversity with distance from road: Simpson's diversity D (a) and Shannon's diversity H (b). The line was fitted by generalized additive models with a third-order polynomial smoothing spline. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: Both Simpson's diversity index (D) and Shannon's diversity index (H) of leaf miners increased from 0.5 m to 4.5 m from road, and then H dropped (Figure 5), while D and H of leaf gallers decreased continuously with increasing distance from road (Figure 6).
