Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Altered habitat: disturbed forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "a coppice... experimentally arranged in alternating 25-m rows of mown and unmown strips of undergrowth" in an area "covered with deciduous broad-leaf forests dominated by deciduous oaks"
Life forms: butterflies
Sampling methods: line transect, butterfly nets, visual
Sample size: 775
Years: 2001
Sampling comments: "transect counts along a 2, 490-m route... twice a month from April to October... we recorded the number of adults... sighted within a 10-m width... and 5-m height along the transect. Butterflies not readily identified were captured by net and released after identification"
