|The second level of the Pantheon hierarchy, under Broad biotope and above Resources.
|A label used (under the Resources heading) to group together habitat-related subdivisions
|There is a succession of invertebrates colonising and later dying out as the heartwood is gradually decayed by specialist decay fungi (predominantly the larger bracket fungi), cavities form, and debris accumulates in the base and composts down into wood mould.
|The assemblage type is found in and around mature and ancient trees and shrubs.
|Species associated with heavier shade conditions, within sheltered woodland
|hollow tree cavities
|Cavities in the heartwood that contain nests of birds, mammals or other invertebrates.
|honeydew & sap runs (adult)
|Species that feed as adults on honeydew (the sugar-rich liquid secreted by aphids and some scale insects as they feed on plant sap) or directly on sap
