Data were provided by the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest research program, funded by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program (DEB 2025755), US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, and Oregon State University.
While substantial efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of data and documentation, complete accuracy of data sets cannot be guaranteed. All data are made available "as is". The Andrews LTER shall not be liable for damages resulting from any use or misinterpretation of data sets.
This publication is not a pro forma species list; rather, it has been generated as the result of diverse ecological studies centered on and around the Andrews Forest beginning in 1971. No attempt has been made to exhaustively collect the area with methodologies appropriate to each invertebrate group. This list provides some insight into the enormous invertebrate diversity present in the coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. It provides reference material for investigators who might be engaged in ecological investigations. We hope that these data, set in an ecological context, will stimulate collaboration and facilitate the design of future research.
