Extraction methods, winkler.  The soil and leaf litter harbor a diverse and interesting but hard to access fauna of arthropods.  Another of the tricks that we use to arthropods is the winkler funnel.  Leaf litter from the forest floor is sifted, concentrated and placed in a bag inside this cloth funnel.  Small arthropods fall into the capture cup at the bottom.  Here Vanessa is hanging winkler funnels at Banahaw base camp.
