Resurvey macrolepidoptera at 3 sites used previously and one new site to compare species richness, and to characterize macrolepidopteran biodiversity by site and year. Survey insects to establish site specific data on species abundance and diversity, and to establish permanent monitoring sites for long term trend information. Document insect biodiversity with respect to elevation and habitat. Document taxonomic diverstiy and abundance of selected insect groups, especially Lepidopters, Diptera, Hymenoptera, and Coleoptera. Conduct a light trap survey for macrolepidoptera at three sites on Mount Mansfield where collections were made between 1990-1995, and at one new site on Mansfield in Stowe at 950 m.
