Abstract

A study of insect density in oil palm plantation and secondary forest of Kampung Endap was conducted in December 2013 and March 2014. Modified aerial net method was used to collect the sample of nocturnal insects for three hours from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm in both sites at an interval of 30 minutes. A total of nine orders of insects have been collected in oil palm plantation and secondary forest of Kampung Endap. In this study, the total number of individuals caught in oil palm plantation was 1261 meanwhile for secondary forest was 586 individuals. Mann-Whitney Test shows that there is no significant difference in number of individuals captured in oil palm plantation and secondary forest of Kampung Endap. Kruskal Wallis Test also shows that there was no significant difference found in time segments between these habitat types. Besides, Independent samples ttest also indicated that there was insignificant difference in densities of insects between oil palm plantation and secondary forest. In terms of insect's weight, secondary forest obtained 3670.4 mg which was higher than oil palm plantation of 2521.0 mg. However, One-Way ANOVA shows that there was no significant between oil palm plantation and secondary forest. Nine orders of insects have been collected from both sites at which order Diptera have the highest number of individuals in oil palm plantation and secondary forest. Insects are most active between 7.00= 7.30 pm where the collections of insects were higher at this time of sampling in both habitat types.
