Sampling Methods

The sampling methods were specific to the taxonomic groups and included transect walks, hand sampling, seining and using insect traps and active insect collecting.

Study Extent The Oelemarie River area was sampled were sampled once.
Quality Control In some cases the identification of specimens was rechecked by foreign experts.

Method step description:

  1. 1. The amphibians were collected using line transects during night surveys. Reptiles were collected by hand when encountered. Insects were collected using various methods (insect traps, active sampling). Fishes were collected using gill nets and seining. 2. The specimens were labeled in the field and after identification a collection number was assigned to each specimen. 3. The specimens were first preserved in formaldehyde and then transferred into 70% Ethanol. 4. All specimens were identified to species using literature and keys.
