Sampling comments: "Nine arrays of pitfall traps were installed... An array consisted of two lines with four buckets (100 l) each, 15 m apart, and connected by a plastic drift-fence (45 m longand 0.5 m high). Pitfall lines were 100 m apart. The 18 lines with a total of 72 buckets were checked on 3 d/mo, resulting in 2592 trap-nights"
