The caveat is that it is the standard curve seen on most temperate studies. In the tropics you need ~10 years of consistent sampling to see the curve level off. Not to mention that the canopy and understory communities are almost completely different.

It is my impression that Tony's data look like a lot of data sets I've seen, e.g. a series of 6 papers published by Teraguchi and Lublin, 1999. in Kirtlandia, Vol 51, pages 3 thru 86.  The data were based on almost 10 years of monthly light trapping of moths at 6 sites in NE Ohio.  I was involved in the project as a pro bono consultant helping them with identifications.  I think I've seen a term for the kind of curve Tony suggests, and if I remember correctly, it is a standard curve seen in most long term studies.

Cheers from sunny, and a comfortable 70F southern NM.
