Title: Comparative analysis of edge effect on bird and beetle communities
Authors: A. Báldi & T. Kisbenedek

Abstract: Effect of edge was studied at the same time and place on bird and beetle communities in a riparian forest in Hungary. The diversity of birds was similar in the edge and in the interior habitats, but density increased in the edge. There were no significant differences between the edge and the interior bird communities. The beetle communities sampled in the forest edge, interior-edge and interior habitats differed significantly from each other. There were differences in calculated species number, diversity and equitability. Flying ability was related to habitat, with the number of species with flying ability increasing towards the edge. Our study revealed that the effect of edge may have similar consequences on taxonomically distant groups, but the applied scale was appropriate to detect significant differences only for beetles, not for birds. With two original figures.
