Indicators must be developed in order to track the long-term effects of the removal of residual biomass (forest harvesting residues) on litter-dwelling insects. Working in collaboration with colleagues from the Université du Québec à Montréal and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, a research team from the Canadian Forest Service targeted 10 species of rove beetles commonly found in the boreal forest that have significant impacts on the transformation of harvesting residues.
