ALAS Sweepnet Collections, 2001 Expeditions

Sweepnet samples were collected by sweeping low vegetation, mainly in clearings, treefall gaps, and trail edges, during clear weather. Net contents were periodically transferred to a large plastic bag. Each sample is one hour of sweeping activity by one person. The hour included both sweeping time and time transfering material to the bag. After the hour of sweeping, the sample was returned to the lab and fumigated with ethyl acetate for one hour. Survey taxa were then picked from the sample and stored in 95% ethanol, with the exception of large Tettigoniidae, which were gutted and wrapped in paper towel to dry. Remaining debris was discarded. Samples are listed below.

The data fields, in order, are:

Collection code

The "11" indicates that it is from the 1070m site, the "RG" indicates it is a sweepnet sample, the following three letters are the initials of the collector, and the final three-digit number is a serial number beginning with 001 for the first sample, with a separate series for each collector.

Collection date
: in format day-month-year.

Collector: person taking the sample.
