  • This database contains information on species abundance according to date and location within the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest Lookout Creek watershed. The database provides the information needed to assess patterns in the abundance of butterflies across time and space. The distribution and abundance of butterfly species on the Andrews Forest is strongly influenced by geographical scale, elevation, aspect, plant community, management regime, and time of year. Patterns of distribution and abundance are based on an historical total of 80 species, of which 73 are resident species and about 55 of which may be observed in any given year. Butterflies were surveyed at two- week intervals from late April through early October over a three-year period (1994-6). Approximately one-third of the watershed was covered during each visit, thus each area was sampled at about 6 week intervals within each sample season.
