Abstract:The purpose of this project was to determine whether Carrion Beetles have a preference for canopy versus ground level traps, whether there was a difference in the types of Carrion Beetles caught over the collection period, and whether there was a difference in the types of Carrion Beetles caught at the different sites (deciduous versus conifer). I found that different species had definite preferences.
