Correction to: J Insect Behav

The original version of this article unfortunately contained some mistakes for the greek letter “Ɵ” were unconverted which resulted to missing “Ɵ” in the proof manuscript.

The formula appearing in column 1 of page 4 of the paper that should be read Ɵ = 1- (N1/i).

In paragraph “Where “Ɵ” is the sampling coverage, “N1” is the number of behavioral acts observed only once, and “i” the total of acts observed. Values of Ɵ between 0.90 and 1 indicate that sampling has reached sufficiency. The closer Ɵ approaches 1, the probability of observing a new behavioral act is low, and the more complete the sample coverage (Fagen and Goldman 1977).”

The same mistake appears in the legend of Table 1, and in the last row of the first column of Table 1 to read “Sampling coverage (Ɵ) follows Fagen and Goldman (1977); the closer Ɵ approaches 1, the more complete the sample coverage.”

Last row of the first column of Table 1 that should be read as “Sampling Coverage (Ɵ)”.

The original article has been corrected.
