Sampling event

Beetles on polypores at 4 sites in Norway

Latest version published by Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) on 13 December 2019 Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)
The dataset is based on search and collections of insects on polypores at 4 locations (Dølerud, Nordre Pollen, Eldor and Vardåsen) close to Ås. All samplings were carried out between 29. May to 30. September 2017. The master thesis “Do insect fungivores that visit polypore cafes aid spore dispersal?” by Kristian Seres is based on this data.
