Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical moist broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: agriculture, selective logging
MAT: 27.5
MAP: 2700.0
Habitat comments: "three different habitats: one in primary forest, one in rural area (i.e., chacra), and one in secondary forest (i.e., purma)... The rural area included agricultural lands planted with pineapple... yucca... banana... and fruit trees" and there is "no well-marked dry season"
Life forms: rodents, other small mammals
Sampling methods: line transect, baited, pitfall traps, Sherman traps, Tomahawk traps
Sample size: 1054
Years: 2002 - 2005
Days: 616
Net or trap nights: 62692
Sampling comments: "Each line contained 50 traps stations (10 m spacing) comprising a Sherman and Tomahawk traps and were sampled for seven nights. Traps were baited with peanut butter, oats, and fruits. Pit fall traps were placed outside of the line traps in primary or secondary forest, between three and six buckets were spaced at 5 m intervals along a transect. In total, 21 localities were sampled in the primary forest, 31 in secondary forest, and 36 in rural areas" (i.e., 88 localities x 7 nights = 616 nights x 100 traps plus 52 localities x 7 nights x a minimum of 3 pitfall traps = 62692 trap nights)
