Abstract: Changes of habitat fidelity and habitat selection indices, based on the indices developed by Buse (1988), were studied on beetles of different successional stages in the Buda Hills, near Budapest, Hungary. Habitat selection of beetle species ranged from habitat specialists to habitat generalists, but it did not show any trends along the successional gradiant. There were differences in mean habitat fidelity among the beetles of different feeding types. In the present study, temporal changes of habitat selection depended on the overwintering strategies and the feeding claims of the species.
