About this book

All you need to know about lamps, the design of light traps and their use in the field. The first section deals with the history of light traps, the types of light source which have been found to be effective in light traps and the wavelengths of the light they produce. Designs of light trap are then covered, together with suggestion for building your own. Later sections deal with light trap use, comparing the merits of different designs in terms of catch size, portability and versatility, and examine uses for biological survey and conservation monitoring.
