Data from: Effects of undergrowth removal and edge proximity on ground beetles and vascular plants in urban boreal forests

Matti Koivula, Tiina Virta, Markku Kuitunen & Elisa Vallius
Urban forests are regularly managed for human safety and aesthetic reasons, but they are crucial habitat for many species. Removals of undergrowth occur commonly in these forests, yet the ecological consequences of these operations are poorly understood. We sampled ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) and vascular plants along 20-m edge gradients in Finnish urban forests, in five stands treated 0.5−2.5 years earlier with undergrowth removal and in five untreated stands. We hypothesized that undergrowth removal and...
