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: 920
Years: 2006
Days: 224
Seasons: spring, summer, autumn
Nets or traps: 40
Net or trap nights: 8960
Sampling comments: "One transect was selected for studies during the whole non-freeze period of the year from April to November. 40 pitfall traps were arranged on 80 m long transect. Transect started on white dune then crossed typical grey dune and ended at dry coastal meadow. The distance between traps was 2 m. The traps were emptied and refilled every two weeks from 02.04.2006 to 12.11.2006" (i.e., over a 224 day span, meaning 17 collection events)
