Insect Emergence from Arctic Coastal Plain Thaw Ponds, 2012-2013

May 11, 2021

This dataset provides information on the identity and number of insects that emerged from thaw pond basins on the central Arctic Coastal Plain, Alaska, during the summer growing season in 2012 and 2013. Collections were made using passive floating emergence traps in pond centers and margins from four types of ponds: low centered polygons, troughs, small coalescent, and large coalescent. A single table provides detail on the family level identity and number of insects captured, the day and year of capture, and the duration of trapping.
