Foliage Arthropods

Study number: 

369

Data set ID: 

210369002

Original investigator: 

John Anderson

Abstract: 

*We conducted a field study to test the hypothesis that creosotebush (Larrea tridentata) shrubs growing in naturally nutrient-rich sites had better quality foliage and supported greater populations of foliage arthropods than shrubs growing in nutrient-poor sites. This is data for foliage arthropods sampled from Lm LVAR creosotebush shrubs. Sampling was done in April of 1985 and 1986.

Shrubs were sampled from 5 separate sites, designated A-E. 10 shrubs of 3 different selected types, random = R, high quality = H, low quality = L, were sampled at each site. Total numbers of individuals of each of the common species of foliage arthropods from each of the 30 shrubs/site are listed.

Total numbers of taxa and individuals of each major trophic group, herbivores, predators, omnivores, from each of the 30 shrubs/site are listed.
