Basic information
Sample name: Cascades Region (2011)

Reference: M. Pavia, G. Boano, F. Silvano, and K. Mamadou. 2012. New bird records from southwestern Burkina Faso. Malimbus 34:57-81 [ER 738]
Country: Burkina Faso

Coordinate: 10° 7' 30" N, 4° 40' 0" W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Geography comments: all of the mist netting was apparently done at two localities (Banfora Area and Comoé-Léraba); coordinate is the midpoint for the two
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
WMT: 30.5
CMT: 24.8
MAP: 1000.0
Habitat comments: first locality is surrounded by "extensively cultivated with rice and millet fields" but sampling was in a "thin but dense gallery forest"; second combines "mainly open, park-like savanna woodland" with "semi-deciduous gallery forest... and dry forest"
climate data are based on station 65510 (Bobo-Dioulasso)
Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: mist nets
