  • Is plant stand affected by soil type?
  • What type of relationship exists between the trees

and ground cover, and the presence or absence of

various animals?

  • Which variables we studied within our study site are

most conductive to a higher spider population?

  • Does baiting the pitfall traps increase the number

and diversity of numbers of animals that are

attracted to or fall into the traps?
