6. Forest environments assessed using lepidopterous insects
Two of the author's published papers concerning assessments of forest condition using lepidopterous insects were summarized and the usage of some sampling methods for Lepidoptera assemblages (i.e. transect counts, Malaise trap, and light trap) were briefly discussed. 1. Effects of fires on butterfly assemblages in lowland dipterocarp forest of East Kalimantan (Hirowatari et al. 2007a): The post-fire butterfly fauna in a lowland dipterocarp forest of the Bukit Soeharto Education Forest (BSEF), East Kalimantan, Indonesia, was assessed during November 1998-April 2000 by consecutive Malaise trap sampling. A total of 514 butterflies belonging to 61 species and representing six families were caught in the traps. Melanitis leda, Charaxes bernardus, and Danaus genutia were the most frequent species caught, representing 31% of the total. These three species are generalists and 'disturbance indicators' for tropical rain forests. A post-fire survey determined that only 43% of the butterfly species were still present. The data suggested that refugia that will not be affected by fire are necessary for the conservation of specialist butterflies. 2. Species diversity of microlepidoptera assemblages within three forest ecosystems. 1. Microlepidoptera as a bioindicator. (Hirowatari et al. 2007b): Microlepidoptera biodiversities of three forest ecosystems, (1) A Japanese botanic garden, (2) a public park, and (3) a primary forest were assessed using a light trap operated one night per month from May to July and in September 2001 in Atami City and Kannami Town, Shizuoka Prefecture. The primary forest site contained the highest number of species and individuals. The species diversity index (1-λ) of each site was high showing more than 0.95. Species richness and abundance of Tortricidae, Pyralidae, and Gelechiidae were the highest at all three sites. Species richness of Yponomeutidae was notably higher in the primary forest than the others, while that of Lyonetiidae was highest in the park. At all sites, relatively many species (about 10% of the total) with unique feeding habits other than genuine phytophagy, i.e., detritophagy (or fungivory), were collected. This may have showed that the forest floors where detritophagous (or fungivorous) species mainly inhabit were in a preferable condition for these species..
