A standard method for sampling termites in rain forest
What is it about?
It describes a simple method for sampling termites across all of the accessible microhabitats in a forest. It takes 20 person-hours to do, but we show that it produces a good, unbiased and comparable result, without complex tools or instrumentation.
Why is it important?
It has become the standard method of sampling forest termites and has led to a large number of papers and comparative studies.
