Litterfall was collected in a 0.64 ha area for three months, using 25 litter traps. Resampling methods were used to calculate the total litterfall mass grand mean and coefficient of variation (CV) for each month using different numbers of litter traps (2–25). Based on the variation of those two statistics, it was possible to determine the minimum number of litter traps necessary to achieve accuracy (variation in grand mean) and precision (magnitude of CV).
