In a relict woodland and a conifer plantation, moth species richness, diversity and species composition were more comparable between sites within each woodland than between woodland types. Although fewer species were recorded in the plantation, a log normal pattern of species abundance was observed in both habitats. Only a small proportion of moth species in the plantation were dependent on the conifer trees for larval food supply. -from Author
