Branch eclector – Trap for arthropods approaching and crawling up or down the branch of the tree.
The branch eclector is open at one end and can be used to study species composition, phenology and prevalence (although limited usability for prevalence).
Positively phototactic reacting animals moving up towards natural light are trapped inside an eclector head box; animals falling or crawling down are caught in the collecting bottle fitted at the bottom.
- Simple assembly with Velcro and adjustable spacers
- Separation of phototactic reacting insects
