GCE-LTER Data Set Summary

Accession: INS-GCEM-2004 Research Theme: Terrestrial Insect Ecology (Monitoring)
Contributor: Steven C. Pennings
Title: Abundance of the planthopper Prokelisia at GCE LTER sampling sites in October, 2003-2019
Abstract: The abundance of the planthopper Prokelisia spp was estimated each year during the fall monitoring at each zone of each GCE site that was dominated by Spartina alterniflora. N Observations were made in the vicinity of the permanent vegetation plots and Prokelisia abundance was scored on a 5 point scale.
