Abstract

<p>The abundance of arthropods differed between habitat types (all <i>P</i><0.001 from a zero-inflated hurdle model [see text]) and samples collected at systematically sampled locations (transects) had fewer arthropods than areas selected by migrants (selected; <i>P</i><0.001) but there was a significant interaction between habitat type and type of sample (<i>P</i><0.001). Within pine habitat (<i>n</i> = 37 selected, <i>n</i> = 133 transects) there were more arthropods in areas selected by migrants. The opposite was true within hardwood habitat (<i>n</i> = 213 selected, <i>n</i> = 132 transects) and there was no difference in arthropod abundance between sample types within mixed habitat (<i>n</i> = 150 selected, <i>n</i> = 130 transects).</p
