Methods: 

Data represent the total arthropod biomass captured per pitfall cup over a 48 hour period divided by 2 to standardize to a 24 hour sampling window. For an extensive description of sampling, please see published work: DOI: 10.1111/jav.01712.  For details on how modeled variables were calculated, please see supplement 2. If supplement 2 is insufficient to answer your questions, please contact associated researcher Ashley Asmus (or secondarily Laura Gough) for questions on how model predictions were generated from measured data.
