Changbaishan Nature Reserve (mixed coniferous and broad-leaved forest)
Basic information
Sample name: Changbaishan Nature Reserve (mixed coniferous and broad-leaved forest)

Reference: Y. Zou, W. Sang, H. Zhou, L. Huang, and J. C. Axmacher. 2014. Altitudinal diversity patterns of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in the forests of Changbai Mountain, Northeast China. Insect Conservation and Diversity 7:161-171 [ER 1039]
Country: China
State: Jilin

Coordinate: 42° 16' 0" N, 127° 59' 30" E
Basis of coordinate: stated in text as range
Geography comments: located on Changbai Mountain
coordinate is the midpoint of ranges given in the text
elevation approximately 700 to 900 m
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Life forms: ground beetles
Sites: 11
Site area: 0.110
Sampling methods: quadrat, pitfall traps
Sample size: 1178
Years: 2011, 2012
Nets or traps: 176
Sampling comments: "the plots themselves measured 10 m x 10 m" and "Four pitfall traps comprising plastic cups... were placed in each corner of each sampling plot. To increase sample sizes, an additional 4 traps were added in the midpoint between neighbouring corner cups in the final 3 weeks of the sampling period in 2012 at all plots" (figure of 176 is therefore a minimum)
