I also have some insect/invert sampling questions for you. I am looking for a methodology to trap insects within cave systems that limits the lethal component of many pitfall traps. Parks Canada would prefer I maintain the biological components at the same level by finding some form of replacement technique within sensitive ecosystems; I agree with this position. I am focused on terrestrial (ground dwelling) organisms of the floor community within Alberta Caves for a biodiversity project in and around Jasper National Park. Any revelations in this area? Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thanks again Robin.
