Biodiversity at Linnaeus birthplace in the parish of Stenbrohult, southern Sweden. 1. Habitat distribution of red-listed species.

Abstract
The habitat distribution of red-listed plants, fungi and animals that have been found in the central parts of the parish of Stenbrohult, southern Sweden since 1970 is presented (Tables 1-4). In the centre of the 5 000 ha study area Carl Linnaeus was born in 1707, and he spent his summers there until 1727. In 1971-2002 at least 183 red-listed species have been found, with 73 wood-living beetle species, 51 fungi and 26 lichens as the organism groups with most red-listed species. A large proportion of the red-listed species (78%) are treedependent and a high proportion of these are dependent on old living and dead broad-leaved deciduous trees. For red-listed fungi semi-natural grassland is also an important habitat. Hymenoptera, Diptera and... (More)
The habitat distribution of red-listed plants, fungi and animals that have been found in the central parts of the parish of Stenbrohult, southern Sweden since 1970 is presented (Tables 1-4).

A large proportion of the red-listed species (78%) are treedependent and a high proportion of these are dependent on old living and dead broad-leaved deciduous trees. For red-listed fungi semi-natural grassland is also an important habitat. Hymenoptera, Diptera and several other smaller insect groups have not been studied in the area, neither Lepidoptera in forests nor Coleoptera in meadows and wetlands.Therefore, there are certainly a considerable number of additional redlisted species in the study area that are not yet recorded. I stress the need for rapid habitat restorations of stands with old broad-leaved deciduous trees and unfertilised meadows with late harvest for preservation of the many red-listed species in the study area. Most of these species were probably much more common when Carl Linnaeus lived in Stenbrohult. (Less)
