Likewise, most ecologists examining assemblages or large multispecies samples of beetles are highly unlikely to initially recognize particular protected species of small beetles in their voucher series. One avenue towards overcoming such problems is to widen the ambit of formal protection. Thus, listings of ‘all species of genus X’, noted earlier, may serve the purpose of protecting individual included species that merit this by including them with their close relatives with which they might be confused easily.

2003), demonstrating both high attraction of flying beetles and an intense but short major flight season. The beetle appears to disperse sufficiently well that early concepts of it forming metapopulations (with individual Fomes fungi the component units) may not be correct, and the population in a forest may indeed be continuous. For some forest beetles, distributions may be evaluated through use of aerial photography to detect changes in tree condition, with this approach now becoming highly refined since earlier realization that particular spectral bands may provide fine-scale estimations.

199, and is important in cases (i) where such species co-occur and are not sufficiently well understood to enable individual conservation plans to be prepared, or (ii) where the major need devolves on habitat protection for all the species involved so that conjoint effort is efficient. Placing species on lists accords them priority for conservation, but the lists themselves vary considerably in primary purpose. Some are advisory in not carrying legal weight, whilst others are more formal documents that oblige action and responsibility.
