Description

This data frame contains data from an experiment to see if insects are more attracted to some colors than to others. The researchers prepared colored cards with a sticky substance so that insects that landed on them could not escape. The cards were placed in a field of oats in July. Later the researchers returned, collected the cards, and counted the number of cereal leaf beetles trapped on each card.

Format
