Fig. 2. Typical sites in which carabid beetles were surveyed. All beetle survey sites were 500 × 500 m. The planned locations of pitfall trapping stations are shown as yellow stars (see text for how planned and actual station locations differed). (A) Example sites representing a range of housing densities; we surveyed four replicate sites of each type. (B) Example Urban Neighbor site: the 500 × 500 m forested beetle survey site was adjacent to at least 500 × 500 m of Urban-density development. We surveyed three replicate Neighbor sites adjacent to each of the Suburban and Urban housing density levels.
