Abstract:As a key regulatory factor in forest ecosystem, canopy arthropods are ideal materials in studying global biological hot questions such as the effect of climate change to ecosystems, the stability and balance of forest ecosystem function, and the measures for biodiversity conservation. However, the development of canopy arthropods research was slow due to the limitation of method and technology. In recent decades, upgraded techniques and sampling equipments greatly facilitated the development of this research field. In this study, the developments of techniques in researching canopy arthropods were reviewed, and the main techniques and their characteristics in different historical period were listed and compared. Moreover, the present statuses of research techniques were summarized and their future developments were prospected.
