This week begins a study of the insects of two very different environments. One, a mudflat and tidal wetland, the other a very complex mountain river. The insect abundance study will follow another group of studies concurrently going on at the same time in both watersheds adding terrestrial insects and spiders to perhaps reveal changes through the habitats by altitude, water availability, and disturbance by human beings.
This blog will have dates and images of sites and notes/entries and any changes to the traps. It will also have information for those who wish to help in the Mountian collection...
I am looking forward to this season's collection.
