ZooLog is our second generation monitoring system aiming real-time monitoring of flying, surface and soil living beneficial or pest insects in the field. This innovation is still under development, however, we already produced and tested some desktop and first-step models.
We prototyped a device called EDAPHOLOG monitoring system that consists of (1) a probe that catches and detects soil microarthropods and estimates their body size; (2) a data logger transmitting data to a central database, and (3) a Java application for retrieving data. The system is especially suitable in field research focusing on temporal activity […]
Biomass of soil mesofauna is an important measure in soil ecology, especially in C-sequestration or ecological indication. And since it’s a time-consuming work, we developed a device and software to automatize this lab measurements and work on to do it in the field. The new image analysis method facilitates and accelerates the body length measurement of the collembolan […]
