Title Northern Biodiversity Program
Study Area Description Northern Canada
Design Description 12 sites (see location). Standardized passive sampling design. 9 pitfall and 9 pan traps distributed randomly in 3m 15x75m transects, in 3 mesic and 3 wet habitat replicates (108 traps per site). Traps collected every 4 days (324 samples/site total). Beetles extracted and ID'd.

The personnel involved in the project:

Buddle, Wheeler, Currie, Ernst

Sampling Methods

12 locations (4/northern ecoclimatic zone - see "Geographic Coverage"). 9 pitfall and 9 pan traps distributed randomly in 3m 15x75m transects, in 3 mesic and 3 wet habitat replicates (108 traps per site). Traps set with propylene glycol. Traps collected every 4 days (324 samples/site total). Samples placed immediately in 95% EtOH. Beetles later extracted and ID'd.

Study Extent See "Geographic Coverage"
Quality Control Species-level IDs (or of difficult groups) either performed by, or confirmed by, taxonomic experts.
