Methods
Life forms: ants
Focal species: Wasmannia auropunctata
Sampling methods: line transect, baited, pitfall traps, hand capture
Sample size: 70186
Years: 2007 - 2010
Days: 216
Sampling comments: "Field study was conducted between August 2007 and July 2010" using "baiting, pirfall trapping and visual catch in quadrat or quadrat sampling"
"we set... six parallel transect lines of 90 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 two of the transects were "1 m square" and the bait stations on two 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)" while the pitfall traps on the remaining two transects were "left for 4 days prior to the commencement of the experiment"
