Analysis data


Comparison of Surface Area v. Insect capture number: water surface area_updated.jpg(picture of graph), Water Surface Area v Insects Trapped.xlsx . Conclusion: surface area has no statistically significant correlation with the number of insects captured.
BioSCANSurfaceArea_stdv.xlsx
SurfaceArea_stdv.jpg

Comparison of Wavelength v. Insect capture number: wavelength_updated.jpg(picture of graph),wavelength v insects trapped.xlsx Conclusion: Wavelength has a negative linear correlation with the number of insects captured. So UV, around 380-390nm, appears to be the optimal color for capturing insects.

Comparison of Number of LED's v. Insects Captured: number of leds_updated.jpg(picture of graph), Number of LED'S vs. Insects Trapped.xlsx Conclusion: little correlation between the number of LED's to number of insects captured.

Ongoing questions
1. Relationship between light pollution levels and the population characteristics of insect families in various host cities (Cleo, Gemma).
2. Relationship between captured levels of different populations of insects from Nightwatch prototyping data.
3. Relationship between peak daytime and peak nighttime temperature and the captured levels of different populations of insects from Nightwatch prototyping data.
