A litter box method for the study of litter arthropods

, : A litter box method for the study of litter arthropods. Journal of the Georgia Entomological Society 16(2): 151-156

A litter box designed to be used in letter decomposition and habitat structure experiments is described. The litter box allows litter to vary in shape during decomposition or permits modification of leaf shape prior to placement in the field. Litter boxes, placed in hardwood forest litter for 1 mo., contained significantly greater densities of arthropods than did natural litter, suggesting a potential litter box effect. The influence of leaf shape on populations of litter inhabiting spiders is discussed.
