Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Altered habitat: pasture
Substrate: ground surface
WMT: 19.4
MAP: 617.0
Habitat comments: "Originally, the whole region was forested, except on very steep slopes. Therefore, our three sites were probably covered by forests, but were cut in historical times... all the three sites were grasslands already at the beginning of the century" and this particular site "was an abandoned arable land... with tall grass"
Life forms: orthopterans, other insects
Sites: 1
Sampling methods: line transect, sweep nets
Sample size: 182
Years: 1992
Seasons: summer
Sampling comments: "Orthopteran assemblages were sampled using the sweep-netting method on previously marked l-m wide transects... The number of sweeps were 142/50 m (sd = 17.5, n = 20). The total length of the transects was 200 m on the AAL and MED sites, and 310 m on the SNSM site... The sampling was carried out... in mid-July"
