dc.descriptionThe datasets in this folder each consist of a metadata sheet explaining the sampling protocol and information pertaining to the dataset, ant data for each season (March and October) and year (2006 - 2012) with species names and abundances for 40 sites, and a new species names sheet containing the most recent name changes. The most recent changes were made in June 2014.en
dc.description.abstractThe Iimbovane Outreach Project investigates the abundance and diversity of ants along two extensive transects through the Fynbos and Succulent Karoo biomes of South Africa. It is a long term project initiated in 2005 by Principal Investigator Prof. S.L. Chown, Stellenbosch University. Data collection is carried out by Grade 10 learners and the Iimbovane team on a biannual (spring and autumn) basis.en

There were also times when pitfalls went missing on school sites or were found pulled out from the planted areas. Whenever 40% or more traps per site were damaged as above, replanting was done.en
