Appendix F. The relative contribution of the tested methods in detecting additional species.


   FIG. F1. Mean percentages of species that were additionally detected with the tested methods in the (a) agricultural and (b) seminatural habitats (observation plots (OP), standardized (ST) and variable (VT) transect walks, pan traps (PT), and trap nests with paper tubes (TNP) and reed internodes (TNR)). The percentage of species that were detected with the most efficient method (i.e., pan traps in both cases) is identical to the mean sample coverage across all study sites. The percentages of additionally detected species for the other methods were calculated in the sequence of the methods’ efficiency in detecting additional species (N = 16).
