The main aim of the project is to determine the abundance and species diversity of ants and beetles along the altitudinal transect (Cederberg transect). The transect comprises of 17 sampling sites, each with 4 plots from the west coast (Lambert’s Bay; sea level) to Wupperthal (Karoo) crossing the Cederberg mountains including Sneeukop Peak (1926 m). The sites are sampled twice a year using pitfall traps.
