Methods
Life forms: scarab beetles
Sites: 3
Sampling methods: baited, pitfall traps
Sample size: 249
Years: 1994, 1995
Days: 40
Nets or traps: 6
Net or trap nights: 240
Sampling comments: sites SB4, SB7, and SB8
"Each 2 weeks [over nine month], two [dung-baited] traps were placed separately at each sampling location, 4 m from each other, and were removed after 48 h... The total number of traps analyzed was 296" over nine sites (not just these three)
this apparently means that two traps were laid out in each of three locations for two days every two weeks over an approximate 39 week period, which comes to approximately 240 trap days
