Abstract/Summary

Carabid ground beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae L.) have been collected in the Allt a’Mharcaidh since 1999 as part of the Environmental Change Network (ECN) approach to monitoring changing climate and land use. Ground beetles are eminently suited to use as bioindicators as they are ubiquitous, varied (morphologically, behaviourally and ecologically), easily sampled and relatively simple to identify. Most importantly, they have tendency to shift their distribution as a response to climate change rather than undergoing physiological adaptation (Butterfield, 1996).
