abstract
Some of the threatened Belgian populations of the stag beetle are found in a suburban context near Brussels. In this study, a protection strategy is selected based on modelling of the capacity to colonise habitat patches. The habitat requirements were studied and we found that the stag beetle inhabits open woody habitat on steep south-exposed slopes. Two different maps, one with suitable and one with potential habitat were created based on these requirements. Colonisation of habitat patches was modelled to detect best practice for creating corridors between isolated populations and nearby forests. Our results showed that stag beetle colonisation over a period of about 30 years does not exceed a radius of about 1 km. This means that a strategy is required which focuses on in situ protection and the creation of suitable habitat in nearby receptor sites, such as parks.
