Table 1 Details of the six specific synthesis questions of the review

From: Can linear transportation infrastructure verges constitute a habitat and/or a corridor for insects in temperate landscapes? A systematic review

Number Details Short question
Question 1 Which LTI verge management practices increase, decrease or have no effect on insect biodiversity? Habitat/management practices
Question 2 Is the insect biodiversity of LTI verges equal to, higher, or lower than the biodiversity of habitats away from the LTIs? Habitat in LTI verges vs. at proximity
Question 3 Which LTI verge management practices increase, decrease or have no effect on insect dispersal? Dispersal/management practices
Question 4 Is insect dispersal on LTI verges equal to, higher, or lower than their dispersal in habitats away from the LTI? Dispersal in LTI verges vs. at proximity
Question 5 Is the insect biodiversity of LTI verges dependent on the surrounding landscape?a Habitat/surrounding landscape
Question 6 Is insect dispersal on LTI verges dependent on the surrounding landscape?a Dispersal/surrounding landscape
  1. aThe spatial scale of the surrounding landscape can range from the land use directly adjacent to the LTI verge, to radii of hundreds of meters
