Do you think you could add "UV light sheet" and "MV light sheet" to distinguish them from "light trap"?

Posted by kueda almost 11 years ago

I wonder if "kick net" should be added as separate from "pond net". Kick sampling in flowing streams with a robust kick sampling net isn't really "pond net" sampling.

Posted by jon_sullivan over 6 years ago

I added it.

Posted by kueda over 6 years ago

Sweet. Thanks!

Posted by jon_sullivan over 6 years ago

I've just added "Hand collection" to the list for instances where insects are collected by hand. It's a bit different from just camera and just note book in the sense that the insect is collected (e.g. in a vial) and can be them looked at more closely for photography and potentially vouchered.

Posted by jon_sullivan about 6 years ago

I added "Wooden disc", a method commonly used in New Zealand where a sawn disc from an untreated tree trunk (typically a pine) gets left on the ground and regularly checked to see which invertebrates move in under the disk. For details, see Bowie, M.H. and Frampton, C.M. 2004. A practical technique for non‐destructive monitoring of soil surface invertebrates for ecological restoration programmes. Ecological Management & RestorationVolume 5(1), https://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1442-8903.2004.00171.x

I also added "Wooden tree-mounted shelter", another common NZ invertebrate monitoring method where small wooden shelters are mounted in trees. The shelters have a small entrance small enough to keep out house mice. We also call these "weta motels" here, after one group of insects that commonly occupy these shelters. See Bowie M, Hodge S, Banks J, Vink C. 2006. “An appraisal of simple tree-mounted shelters for non-lethal monitoring of weta (Orthoptera: Anostostomatidae and Rhaphidophoridae) in New Zealand nature reserves.” International Journal of Insect Conservation 10: 261-268.

I just added "Yellow sticky trap". That's a method commonly used to monitoring flying pest insects, and flying insects more generally.

Posted by jon_sullivan about 5 years ago

I just added "pan trap" with options yellow, white, and blue. It's a commonly used method of collecting pollinators, at least here in NZ. The pan is an open plastic container filled with water, with a few drops of detergent or other surfactant to break the surface tension, and often some preservative like sodium benzoate to slow the rotting.
