Dominance–diversity curves for 1986 and 2000. Shown are total numbers of beetles captured in an open clear-cut (CLEARCUT), in clear-cuts invaded by secondary vegetation in (SEC.GROWTH.; year 2000 only), in 1-ha forest fragments (1 ha), in 10-ha forest fragments (10 ha) and in continuous forest areas (CON.FOR.), plotted against species rank. Figure for 1986 is from Klein (1989).
