  1. Dear Organizers!

    I have already sent my abstract for presentation about methods of rearing adult flies from deadwood-dwelling larvae.
    In addition, I could demonstrate how to set up emergence trap on dead wood in situ, e.g. in the herb-rich forest near Lammi station, where I happened to use such traps some years ago.

    Another addition: our working team at Finnish Environment Institute just prepared a book about nature values of Zaonezhye Peninsula, or Lindholm, T., Jakovlev, J. & Kravchenko, A. (eds.). 2014. Biogeography, landscapes,ecosystems and species of Zaonezhye Peninsula, in Onega Lake, Russian Karelia. Reports of the Finnish Environment Institute 2014/40. Helsinki. 360 p. The main value, from the point of view of the editors, is a plenty of coarse woody debris in unmanaged forests there, so the book contains ecological notes and lists of species of epiphytic mosses, lichens, wood-growing fungi and insects, mostly associated with wood. I could briefly present this book and release some very fresh (hopefully 15 May will be printed) printed copies for free.

  2. That’s great, thanks. The trap will need to be set on Sunday. A few copies of the book will be welcome, as well as the link to the online PDF version.

    • Dear Dmitry! Nice to hear that! Well, in any case, I am going to come to Lammi on Sunday morning, So, I’ll be in time to choose the best rotten log(s) for the trap, or two. Хоть что-то показать… The book will be printed 15 May (they promissed), and the link will be given simultaneously.
      See you at Lammi.
