Surface and leaf-litter arthropods in the coastal forests of Tanzania



African Journal of Ecology 37(3): 355-365

Surface and leaf litter arthropod assemblages of the seasonal lowland coastal forests of eastern Tanzania were investigated from eleven sites over a 3-year period (1991-93). Pitfall trap data showed that four groups comprised >10% of the total sample: ants (Formicidae, 31%), grasshoppers and crickets (Orthoptera, 22%), beetles (Coleoptera, 17.39%) and spiders (Araneae, 13.48%).
