Expedition 2009
By Dr. Elizabeth T. Arias
  Valdivia and Chiloe Pitfall traps
In January 2009 we started in Valdivia collecting the pitfall traps that Kip left in the forests in November 2008. We wanted to know what animals are abundant and what species. The traps were sorted out I Santiago and then Elizabeth brought all the beetles and the spiders back to USA for final process and identification.
