Title

Invertebrate dry weight data in various locations, mostly within the LEF at El Verde
Summary

Short name: 

LUQMetadata134

Data set ID: 

134

Abstract: 

Contains information [identity, counts, size, fresh and dry weights] of various collections of invertebrates (and the occasional amphibian or reptile), which has allowed formulae describing the relationship between length and dry wt. of invertebrates to be obtained. These have been used in estimating biomass in studies of bromeliad, heliconia and litter inveretebrates in the LEF. They will have a wider application.
