- Sep 3, 2010Vince and Jim: I agree. What is the point in passively collecting large numbers of a well known and easily monitored species? Pan traps may have their uses in sampling unknown faunas, but without calibration, they can't provide useful data on either absolute or relative abundance. It's a technique that look rigorous but isn't.bestJackJohn L. Neff
