Program Description

This project will conduct inventories to document the biodiversity of terrestrial arthropods on Alaska National Wildlife Refuges. Arthropod samples will be collected by Refuge Inventory and Monitoring staff in conjunction with vegetation surveys to provide a better understanding of basic community structure and to establish a baseline with which to monitor the effects of climate change and other stressors on pristine communities.
