Table 2 Species that are either I = fire favored, II = strongly fire favored, and III = fire-dependent and also has a red-list category of at least NT are presented in the table (NT: near threatened, VU: vulnerable, EN: endangered). The different nutritional preferences of the species are represented with C for cambivore, W for wood-boring, F for fungivore, P for predator, D for detrivore and ‘?’ before the letter indicating the functional group expresses uncertainty in that classification

From: Wildfire yields a distinct turnover of the beetle community in a semi-natural pine forest in northern Sweden
