Data obtained from an insect survey of the oak grove in the ‘environmental park’ around Lake Østensjø (established 2002). “Østensjøvannets Venner” initiated the survey in 2014 to document the species diversity particularly in relation to a few large and potentially hollow oak trees. The aim of the survey was to identify which beetle species associated with dead wood exists in this area. Four insect traps (window traps) were put out at three different oak-tree locations, in the beginning of May to the end of August 2014. The traps were emptied every second week during this period. Sindre Ligaard identified the beetles. Totally 45 beetle species were found.
The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 32 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
