Multiple sampling locations were identified based on elevation, vegetation type, and access. in any given sampling period, a subset of sites are sampled. Among sampling periods, sampling effort is rotated among locations to capture heterogeneity within and among plant communities across an elevational gradient.
trap placement was always at ground level employing 22 watt light source with a standard BioQuip light trap funnel bucket.
species counts and individual abundance.
