We report 66 ground beetle species in 14 tribes from a natural preserve in northeastern Ohio (Stark County). Six species are new state records. Data from pitfall trap transects across adjoining habitats suggest narrow habitat preferences in some species and broad tolerances in others.
Trends toward flightlessness in forest species and macroptery in the fauna of disturbed agricultural sites are apparent.
