The litterfall trap can be used to obtain samples of fallen leaves, conifer needles, pieces of wood and seeds. Important information can be discovered about the state and process operations of the ecosystem from the mass of litter and its temporal distribution. The chemical examination of litterfall samples in the laboratory gives an insight into the nutrient balance in the ecosystem.
The UGT litterfall trap is funnel-shaped with a collecting surface of 500 mm x 500 mm and a ground surface of 100 mm x 100 mm.It is made from weatherproof aluminium and is riveted in the corner areas. The folds are sealed with silicon rubber. This design means the litterfall trap is both very robust and resistant to falling branches.
The base frame made from square steel tubing enables simple installation and keeps the collector in the correct position. It is fixed in the ground using two ground stakes. The corrosion coating guarantees a long service life. An optional strainer insert for easier removal of litter is available.
