Seasonal activity-abundance of 106 species in 48 genera of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) was based on pitfall trapping records from tobacco fields, pastures, and woodlands in eastern Tennessee. Six teen species of Carabinae and one species of Cicindelinae were considered abundant. Populations of Harpalus pennsylvanicus DeGeer comprised 30.6%. of the total collections. No significant differences in numbers of ground beetles were observed between carbofuran treated and untreated tobacco fields.
