Country: Latvia

Coordinate: 56° 53' N, 21° 10' E
Basis of coordinate: based on nearby landmark
Geography comments: south of Pavilosta (basis of coordinate)
Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate coniferous forest
Protection: nature reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "coastal dune habitats... The white dune bordering the sea was narrow and low, gradually transforming to the grey dune. This habitat covered about 20 m wide zone. The width of typical grey dune was about 50 m. Inlands the grey dune is bordered by dry grassland near Scotch pine plantings"
Life forms: orthopterans
Sampling methods: line transect, pitfall traps
Sample size: 156
Years: 2005
Days: 14
Seasons: summer
Nets or traps: 90
Net or trap nights: 1260
Sampling comments: "faunistic data were obtained also by use of pitfall traps... Pitfall traps were arranged on three transects parallel in-between (interval between them was 7-8 m) and perpendicular to the coast. Every of three 60 m a long transect started at white dune then crossed typical grey dune and ended at dry coastal meadow. The distance between traps was 2 m. The exposition period lasted two weeks"
