2013 BIO 386 course has second field trip to South Mountain
On Thursday, September 05, students of the ASU-SoLS General Entomology course BIO 386 had their second night collecting trip to South Mountain, an popular (and extensive) city park just south of Phoenix that tends to have a good variety of insects. It was a hot night (~ 105 degrees Fahrenheit) which may have reduced insect activity on the plants, ground, and at the Hg/UV light sheets. The proper way to record the locality information is “U.S.: AZ: Maricopa Co.; South Mountain Park at E Pima Canyon Road; 33.362538, -111.988097; general coll. & at Hg/UV lights; leg. N. Franz [replace with your name], IX-05-2013″. See more photos here.
