Abstract

•Dead wood in the upper canopy and near the ground host distinct beetle assemblages.•Habitat heterogeneity is the driver of saproxylic beetle biodiversity.•Conservation in forests should retain trees with abundant dead wood in the canopy.•The necessity of removing dead branches for safety reasons should be reconsidered.•The insect rearing method is less biased by temperature effects on insect activity.
