Invertebrate by-catch from vertebrate pitfall traps can be useful for documenting patterns of invertebrate diversity

Oberprieler, Stefanie; Andersen, Alan N.; Braby, Michael


There is a pressing need to develop simplified sampling protocols that allow invertebrates to be routinely incorporated into terrestrial faunal surveys for informing conservation planning. This study assesses the usefulness of sampling invertebrate by-catch from standard vertebrate bucket pitfall traps for documenting spatial patterns of terrestrial invertebrates. We compare among-site (N = 78) patterns of species richness and composition of ten invertebrate families (comprising ants, beetles...[Show more]
