Arthropod Abundance Data from the Colville River Delta, Alaska

December 14, 2021

This data release contains information on the seasonal diversity and abundance of arthropods collected at the Colville River Delta, Alaska, 2011-2012 and 2014-2107. Researchers with the US Geological Survey began studying the reproductive ecology of birds at a site on the Colville River near the Beaufort Sea coast in 2011. Researchers concurrently collected arthropods at 3-day intervals to understand the relationship between the seasonal abundance of arthropods and the reproductive output of insectivorous birds.
