Supplemental information
Attribute Definitions: site_name - name of site visited gps_easting and gps_northing - coordinates recorded. coordinates are generalized to the site, not to the exact location that the species was observed. date - date species was observed species - latin name of species observed num_adults, num_larvae and num_eggmass - values based on an abundance scale of 1-10, 11-100, 101-1000, 1001-10000, 10000+. juveniles were grouped into num_adults. observer - all observed and verified by lag (luke a. groff)
