Brachycera: Eklektor counts of Brachycera

Description Usage Format Source Examples

Description

In a field trial, 4 treatments were arranged in a randomized complete block design with 8 blocks and 32 plots. Soil eklektor traps were placed in each plot, on six dates from 2005-07-12 to 2005-09-25, the number of individuals of Brachycera (Flies, Order Diptera) hatching from soil were counted. The individuals were classified to the family level. Interest was in assessing potential effects of the novel treatment (Novum) on the abundance of Brachycera, compared to a near standard (Standard) and two additional standard treatments, A and B.
