Habitat comments: an "urban area"
Life forms: ants

Sample size: 38223
Years: 2007 - 2010
Days: 216
Sampling comments: "Field study was conducted between August 2007 and July 2010" using "baiting" and "visual catch in quadrat or quadrat sampling" but not pitfall trapping
"we set eight parallel transect lines of 150 m long" with sampling points "spaced 5 m apart" and six "sampling events were conducted each month"
this apparently means there were 36 months x 6 days = 216 sampling days
the quadrats on four of the transects were "1 m square" and the bait stations on four of the transects contained "a mixture of honey 30%, tuna 50% and soya oil 20%... placed on the ground on a square plastic (20 cm x 20 cm)"
